phpmyadmin "Not Found" after install on Apache, Ubuntu


Setting up a development environment with Ubuntu 14.04 running in VirtualBox, following this guide:

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 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

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
