PhpMyAdmin Installation for a domain is so easy.

mv phpMyAdmin-3.1.1-english phpMyAdmin

Alternatively you may use the filemanger extract option for the purpose.

you can now access your phpmyadmin using the link

Before that you need to configure that.

You need to have

1 database

2 database user

3 database user password.

Now navigate to the directory libraries under /phpMyAdmin/ you will have a file named config.default.php.

You need to edit this file

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = ‘’; // MySQL hostname or IP address
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['port'] = ‘4455′; // MySQL port – leave blank for default port
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['socket'] = ‘/tmp/mysqlt.sock’; // Path to the socket – leave blank for default socket
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = ’socket’; // How to connect to MySQL server (’tcp’ or ’socket’)
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = ‘mysql’; // The php MySQL extension to use (’mysql’ or ‘mysqli’)
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['compress'] = FALSE; // Use compressed protocol for the MySQL connection
// (requires PHP >= 4.3.0)
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = ‘username’; // MySQL control user settings
// (this user must have read-only
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = ‘password’; // access to the “mysql/user”
// and “mysql/db” tables).
// The controluser is also
// used for all relational
// features (pmadb)
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = ‘http’; // Authentication method (config, http or cookie based)?
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = ‘username’; // MySQL user
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ‘password’; // MySQL password (only needed
// with ‘config’ auth_type)
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['only_db'] = ‘trial’; // If set to a db-name, only
// this db is displayed in left frame


Update the above with database name, username, password, control user and password which can be the same as db user and password.

Now try accessing the link
