As like WAMP(Windows Apache MySql PHP) server for Windows, here I will show simple steps which I followed after failing more number of times.

Quick Installations step,

For MySQL give a root password when prompted.,

Restarting Apache webserver,

$sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Hi, after installation when I tried to use phpmyadmin  a very famous MySQL mangement software package by opening as


It failed to open, I encountered OOPS! This link appears to be broken error after doing a lot research I found the way to solve this issue.

I found it here.,

Step 1: Install phpmyadmin package,

$ sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

Step 2: Add the following line at /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

As per suggestion, I tried to open again as http://localhost/phpmyadmin but again failed.

Step 3: As per the given suggestion, type to redo the installation again

$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -plow phpmyadmin

It will ask for user name and password, more number of times. Just enter “root” as username and “any preferred password” as password.

Again I failed to open http://localhost/phpmyadmin

Step 4: “If this does not work, then you can do the following to include the phpMyadmin-shipped Apache configuration into Apache:”

$ sudo ln -s /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 reload

At last, I succeeded http://localhost/phpmyadmin


After entering “root” as the username and “my preferred password”, I succeeded


Enjoy….! For more info
