rpm -Uvh

Note: You can also use original Fedora phpMyAdmin builds or EPEL packages.

2.3 Install phpMyAdmin

yum –-enablerepo=remi install phpmyadmin

3. Setup phpMyAdmin with Apache or Nginx[Apache]

3.1a Check phpMyAdmin Apache Virtual Host

When you install phpMyAdmin you got working Apache Virtual Host automatically, but if you want change it, then check /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf file and modify it

3.1b Create phpMyAdmin Nginx Virtual Host and Other Setup's

Create /etc/nginx/sites-available/phpMyAdmin file with following content:



listen   80;

server_name pma;

access_log /var/log/nginx/phpmyadmin/access.log;

error_log /var/log/nginx/phpmyadmin/error.log;

root /usr/share/phpMyAdmin;

location /


index  index.php;


## Images and static content is treated different

location ~* ^.+.(jpg|jpeg|gif|css|png|js|ico|xml)$


access_log        off;

expires           360d;


location ~ /.ht


deny  all;


location ~ /(libraries|setup/frames|setup/libs)


deny all;

return 404;


location ~ .php$


include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;


fastcgi_index index.php

fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /usr/share/phpMyAdmin$fastcgi_script_name;



This is Nginx phpMyAdmin virtual host configuration which works pretty much like original phpMyAdmin Apache configuration. I use here server_name pma you could freely change this real host name or some other.

Set pma pointing to localhost, add following to /etc/hosts file:  pma

Create needed directory and enable Nginx virtual host:

mkdir -p /var/log/nginx/phpmyadmin

cd /etc/nginx/sites-enabled

ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/phpMyAdmin

3.2a Restart Apache Web Server

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

3.2b Restart Nginx Web Server

/etc/init.d/nginx restart
