Unable to connect to phpmyadmin on ubuntu 20.4

I am setting up a new server with Ubuntu 20.04 & following the Linode docs for Ubuntu 18.04. All is well until I try and open up phpmyadmin in the browser to load the database. Message I am getting is -

Not Found

The requested URL was not found on this server.

Apache/2.4.41 (Ubuntu) Server at [ip address] Port 443

Any pointers appreciated.

Your web server is not configured correctly. Did you test your configuration?

sudo apachectl configtest

-- sw

Thanks @stevewi - Not sure what that means, but it gives me somewhere to start looking. I'll let you know how I get on.


@gibney --

sudo /usr/sbin/apachectl configtest tells apache to do a syntax check on your apache configuration and report errors.

This might help too:


Ubuntu is a downstream derivative of Debian.

-- sw

It might also help to know what doc you followed.

Ubuntu (or any distro really) won’t come with PhpMyAdmin installed out-of-the-box, which is what the error you’re seeing is suggesting.

I could only find this doc for installing PhpMyAdmin on Ubuntu 14.04, but it should largely still be relevant and might give you some more pointers if not:
