So ok next stage in my venture into linux - installing phpmyadmin..
I'm using a LAMP server as downloaded from Ubuntu and managed to get webmin installed last night.
So far tonight I've manged to get the correct download from phpmyadmin/move that to a folder called phpmyadmin in var/www/
I've just followed the directions to untar the tar.bz2 and am now totally stuck as to why the files are not showing in the phpmyadmin folder - something to do with compiling them I believe?
Can anyone just give me the basic sudo commands i.e
1 sudo tar -xvjf etc etc
2 sudo ?????
3 sudo ?????
So anyway, I looked over these forums, ubuntu and can't find a simple set of instructions.
n.b. I've just found where it unpacked all the files to - my local folder (The one with my username) - I get the name of the folder phpmyadmin-2.10.3-english and that has a padlock on it[?]
So question is how do I now get that back to /var/www/phpmyadmin/ and obviously so phpmyadmin will work?
