I am having issues with configuration of phpmyadmin.  When I  go to test, http://ipaddress/phpmyadmin, I received an error messages stating the "The requested URL /phpmyadmin was not found on this server".  I have reviewed my error log which state can not file the file.

I am running centos 5,  MySQL 5.0.2, Apache 2, and php 5 on my server.   Which all have been tested and run fine.   The directory /usr/local/apache2/htdocs contains the file and is configure as such

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = 'tcp';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['compress'] = false;
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysql';
$cfg['UploadDir'] = '';
$cfg['SaveDir'] = '';

    Accepted Solution

    According to the directory you stated that phpMyAdmin's config file is in, it looks like it was installed in the root of your website rather than in the subfolder "phpmyadmin".

    Check to see if http://ipaddress/ will pull up phpMyAdmin successfully.

    This isn't an issue with configuration of phpMyAdmin, this is a server location or permissions issue because it can't find the directory at all!
