How to start phpPGAdmin in Mandrake 10.1?

I have phpPGAdmin installed on Mandrake 10.1 (at least according to urpmi it is). My silly question is: how do I access it? I'm assuming that I have to access it through my browser, so what do I type into the address bar of Firefox.

I've found the directory where it is installed but Firefox doesn't seem to want to open index.php.

I've Googled this and searched the FAQs but can't seem to find an answer to this simple question.

Many thanks and excuse my oversight.

It depends where it is installed and where your server root is. On my Mandriva 2005 LE setup, the URL is

To login as user postgres, you will probably need to edit your file and set $conf['extra_login_security'] to false. This file is in your phpPgAdmin/conf directory. See for more info.

Thanks for your reply John2 but I did eventually get it working. I did have to edit the config file.

Thanks again.
