phpmyadmin fedora 8 red hat

Hi I've got dedicated server, where I try to install phpmyadmin, I've done all the following steps:
unpack the package
> tar -xzvf phpMyAdmin.tar.gz
Move it to the appropriate place.
> mv phpMyAdmin /usr/share/
Create the apache config file for phpmyadmin and restart apache.
> echo "alias /webdb /usr/share/phpMyAdmin" > /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf
> service httpd restart
Configure phpMyAdmin
> cd /usr/share/phpMyAdmin
> cp libraries/config.default.php config.inc.php
> nano -w config.inc.php
Locate each of the following lines and be sure each has the following settings.
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'http'; // Authentication method (con$
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root'; // MySQL user
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ''; // MySQL password (only nee$
Save the file.

I set my $cfg to :
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'http';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = '';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '';

So now I am meaned to go to url of my website and type
<url>/phpMyAdmin
but I get HTTP 404 error

I don't know how to access phpmyadmin on the server?

you need to put this into the webroot or make a symbolic link....

it should reside in say /var/www/html/ or similar...

Alternativley it can stay whare you have it, but add a virtual host in apache.

Depends how competant you are... if starting out simply move/extract it to the /var/www/html folder.

In redhat it might be called httpdocs can't remember 100%.

However... if your using redhat - if it's your own server why not use yum to install it? :)

Well I tried to instal it, but that's what I got back:

yum install phpmyadmin
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
No package phpmyadmin available.
Nothing to do

I don't know how to add package to linux, I am very beginner in that field...

Personally, i would just extract it to the httpdocs and follow http://www.phpmyadmin.net/documentation/

you may have a path like this:

/home/username/public_html/ if you do you could shove it in there

the main web root may be:

/usr/local/apache/htdocs

as i said a while since i've used redhat...
