this is a good example of why i have people install the Apache stack from source for the first 12 or so installs
that way you LEARN how to configure everything
i would re go over the
Apache, MySQL, php,and PhpMyAdmin documentation.
make 100% sure that apache is set up right . Files have the correct permissions , and the httpd set up right
then make sure that mysql is up and running with a NEW non default ( user=user , password=password)
that php is set up and configured and the apache php_mod is running
then that the `myadmin config file is set up correctly.

for convenience you might also want to install mysql,php,phpmyadmin,and the rest
that way Apache docroot /var/www/http
mysql root is /var/www/mysql
and phpmyadmin is /var/www/phpmyadmin
everything is in one place and there is on digging around for files scattered all over the place .
"Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible: /var/www/phpmyadmin"
I think that's what I had. As far as I know symlinks are not allowed with mod_chroot so I would advise people to install phpmyadmin and everything needed inside the jail ... or just give up on chrooting apache.
(the phpmyadmin.conf that I posted earlier was wrong too btw ... but now that's good)
