I am running Debian and I am trying to figure out how I access phpmyadmin. I did apt-get install phpmyadmin and it did everything correctly, but I have no idea how to access it. I tried: but it does not work.... i tried looking up the man file on phpymyadmin, but was unable to find it. What am I doing wrong, how do i access my phpmyadmin through the browser...when i type http://localhost/phpmyadmin it gives me an error that "the connection was refused when attempting to contact it's like it is trying to access the wrong place

another thing, i did locate phpmyadmin... and found a bunch of the files in /usr/share/phpmyadmin... and the index.php file was there... the file and all of that stuff...i dont know if that will help somebody figure this out

If you are getting a connection refusal message, I would make sure that your firewall, if installed, is not blocking your connection, and that you are connecting to the correct address. Also, make sure your webserver is running.

I believe that the phpmyadmin directory needs to be installed in the document root of your webserver, or you need to add the location of your phpmyadmin to the config file of your webserver as a document root location.
