phpmyadmin directory missing


Hello Linux Guru's

After all many times I've read the on line tutorial and How To Install PHPMyAdmin the result is always the same...

I recently installed CentOS 5.5 and finished installing via yum the httpd, Mysql and PHP and have it run smoothly. But when I've tried to download the phpMyAdmin-2.11.11-english.tar.gz.gz and untar it in /var/www/html no phpmyadmin directory in there. I am really confused becase based on the online how to's after I untar it I should move the decompressed file to phpmyadmin directory?

can please anyone help me?

I am confused. Why are you trying to put it in /var?
