Unhappy can not run phpmyadmin


hey! i am very new to linux...
i recently installed apache2 php5 mysql-server-5.0 and phpmyadmin packages.
but i am unable to run phpmyadmin. there is no phpmyadmin folder or link in /var/www/ and so obviously localhost/phpmyadmin gives:
The requested URL /phpMyAdmin/ was not found on this server.

Am also getting the following error while trying to restart apache2:
apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName
httpd not running, trying to start

Can somebody help me with this?

you need to use the name of yourlocalhost under httpd.conf an ip address is a number not a name.
and anyhow localhost = 127.0.0.1
check your configuration under /etc/hosts.

phpmyadmin is run using your browser. Enter the URL "localhost/phpmyadmin" into your browser from the machine on which your MySQL databases are installed or enter "10.1.10.xxx/phpmyadmin" from any machine on your local network where "10.1.10.xxx" is the IP of the machine where your MySQL databases are located.

Thanks for replying!
I have apache2, mysql and php running just fine. The only problem is phpmyadmin.
Do i need to create a link to phpmyadmin ("locate phpmyadmin" gives a whole lot of locations) and if i need to then which location? Or else please tell me how to uninstall phpmyadmin (so i can reinstall).

Sounds like you downloaded it, but didn't configure it. Did you read the installation instructions?

This page http://hostlibrary.com/installing_ph..._on_Linux.html, should help you out.

once it is installed you will not find it under /var/www/html just goto http://apacheserver/phpMyadmin
