phpmyadmin "Not Found" after install on Apache, Ubuntu

31

Setting up a development environment with Ubuntu 14.04 running in VirtualBox, following this guide: http://klau.si/dev

After installing phpmyadmin, it seems I should be able to access it at http://localhost/phpmyadmin but apache returns a Not Found error. Did this guide leave out a configuration step somewhere? I have already tried restarting the apache service.

There is no phpmyadmin.conf file in apache2/sites-enabled or apache2/sites-available, is this required?

If so, where can I find these files?

using 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost returns the same error. The default apache page at http://localhost works just fine.

the console in the browser shows nothing of value, simply Not Found.

I have also tried rerunning the install script with dpkg-reconfigure -plow phpmyadmin

This issue was resolved thanks to this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP#Troubleshooting_Phpmyadmin_.26_mysql-workbench by adding

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

...to the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file and restarting the service.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -plow phpmyadmin 

Select No when asked to reconfigure the database. Then when asked to choose apache2, make sure to hit space while [ ] apache2 is highlighted. An asterisk should appear between the brackets. Then hit Enter. Phpmyadmin should reconfigure and now http://localhost/phpmyadmin should work. for further detail https://www.howtoforge.com/installing-apache2-with-php5-and-mysql-support-on-ubuntu-13.04-lamp
