phpmyadmin & apache

About 3 weeks ago I tried installing phpmyadmin. After thirty minutes of looking for where the directory was on my site I gave up and just pretty much forgot about it. I tried mydomain/phpmyadmin with no luck and everything. Today I restarted my server (First time in like two months) and I saw when it was starting servers it started apache (apache never started at bootup)! I was questioning what in the hell was going on so I went to my site, and to my suprise my site was GONE! There was ONE directory and that was phpmyadmin! AHHH I thought to myself! I looked in my /usr/local/apache2/htdocs and thankfully my files were all there. Now after some looking I figured out /var/www had the phpmyadmin directory. Now I'm thinking to myself maybe phpmyadmin installed another instance of apache? How would I go about uninstalling this but not my apache 2 stuff? I copied all the phpmyadmin stuff that is on my webserver to a directory in my htdocs so I can install it where I want! I appreciate your time guys!

Check DocumentRoot variable in httpd.conf file (probably /etc/httpd/httpd.conf).

that's not the problem I think theres two instances of apache installed. I did a locate for httpd.conf and I got two things




The latter is the one is the one I want to use all the apache stuff in the /usr/local/apache2 directory

I messed around with PHPMyadmin about a week ago. To install it all I did was unzil the files, and plop it in my www folder, edited the config file so it could talk to my DB, and then went to and it worked fine.

I didn't wanna leave it there once I setup the database I was working on cause I couldn't figure out to secure it, and as a general rule, if I don't understand something, I get rid of it. So to get rid of PhPMyadmin I just deleted the PHPMyadmin folder in my www directory, and everything was fine.

I don't think PHPMyadmin actually "installs" so to speak, its just a set up php/html files that talk to your databse.

Yeah your right, but I did apt-get install phpmyadmin and I think as it was setting the stuff up it installed Apache 1.3 and I already have Apache 2.0.

What I have right now is I just went ot Webmin and unchecked the startup script for that apache 1.3 thihng so it doesn't start up at bootup and then I just start my regular Apache 2.0..
