I'm working on a Joomla site where I have ftp access. I'm trying to get access to the database but am unable to find the location of phpmyadmin. The site URL is:
www.midohiosurgical.com

and so far I have tried
www.midohiosurgical.com/phpmyadmin
and
www.midohiosurgical.com:81/phpmyadmin

but neither of these have worked. I do have access to the Joomla files but don't know where this info would be stored. I've been looking through configuration.php but don't see anything that would indicate where the phpmyadmin is.

Thanks for any help.

Do you have access to the web hosting account itself?  Typically you will need this in order to access phpMyAdmin for a domain.  Also, though it is usually installed for most hosting companies, it's possible that phpMyAdmin is not installed, and still needs to be either installed or "activated" for that hosting account.  Do you have access to the CPanel for that account?

Hi elliot. sah18 is right, generally you access the app through which control panel your hosting company provides you. cPanel I believe is the most popular still. Have you tried installing any Joomla extensions that would give you the same functionality? Check these out:

And there maybe more on the Joomla Extension site [http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/hosting-a-servers/database-management]

Good luck!

if all else fails, nothing prevents you from downloading phpmyadmin and "installing" it yourself. It is as simple as downloading, extracting and uploading to a sub-folder, and then editing the config.inc.php file to provide your db details.
