Why does apt-get put phpmyadmin in /usr/share?????

I just put debian on my laptop to try it out. I've been a slackware user for about a year. I'm a web developer and need to have a server on my laptop for local testing before I upload things to the web. I usually use phpmyadmin to administer my databases. I did

apt-get install phpmyadmin

And it put the files which belong in /var/www into /usr/share

Is there a different way of doing things on debian? or do i just need to move the files?

Don't move the files. Have you tried pointing a browser to http://localhost/phpmyadmin yet? THE apt-get install process usually appends an include to httpd.conf that points to /usr/share/phpmyadmin
