phpmyadmin setup


To install phpmyadmin on Ubuntu 16.04, here is what I've done this far:

Code:
sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin php-mbstring php-gettext

sudo phpenmod mcrypt
WARNING: Module mcrypt ini file doesn't exist under /etc/php/5.6/mods-available
WARNING: Module mcrypt ini file doesn't exist under /etc/php/5.6/mods-available
sudo phpenmod mbstring
WARNING: Module mbstring ini file doesn't exist under /etc/php/5.6/mods-available
WARNING: Module mbstring ini file doesn't exist under /etc/php/5.6/mods-available
I have two versions of PHP installed. I go under the same directory, but for 7.1, and mbstring.ini is there. What do I do with this?

When I try to access the phpmyadmin page, it tells me this:

phpMyAdmin - Error
The mbstring extension is missing. Please check your PHP configuration.

I can't access the site.

Personally, I never use phpmyadmin, nor do I allow it to be anywhere on any system.

I always use a dedicated client program that gives me direct access to the MySQL database – through the OpenVPN tunnel, of course.
