phpmyadmin install problem???


Did an apt-get install phpmyadmin and it has been installed on the system but all I get is a blank screen when trying to login??? What gives??

Did a LAMP install on this box so all the supporting pieces should be there.

What have I missed?

T.I.A

[EDIT]

Gave up on it, installed Wine and SQLYog

I still would think that you needed to do some configing (yep, I just made up that word).

I've always installed it from source, its not to hard, and the INSTALL instructions aren't to bad.

It's been awhile since I"ve used/installed phpmyadmin, but I'd dig around for the config file and see what it says......

You say you get a blank page.... Does this mean you get past the login to a blank page? Or do you just get a blank page in general when you type in the address....

More info please.

So, maybe I missed the obvious when trying to install phpmyadmin??

If I did a LAMP install all of the supporting pieces should exist, PHP and MYSQL correct? At that point shouldn't it be a simple `sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin` then follow the readme directions?

TW,

Well, not sure exactly what fixed it but I finally got in...

I think dropping my DB, uninstalling and reinstalling both MYSQL and phpmyadmin might have help???

Also the following (I take no credit) that I found on the web, for future reference.

"#Configure the database (MySQL)

MythTV uses MySQL extensively, so we have to get this set up before anything else. Fire up Firefox and in the address bar, type "localhost". Click the "phpmyadmin" directory. Type in "root" in the login form, and no password. Look down the resulting page for a "Change password" link, and click it; type in what you want your MySQL password to be. Note that this is *not* your root password, or your primary sudo account password. This one is separate, so make it whatever you want it to be. But remember it; we will need it later.

After the password is set, click the "Back" link (not the Back button in your browser). Click on the "Reload MySQL" link. Now, to verify that you password works, login again, using "root" as the user and your MySQL password that you just set; it should work. Logout from phpMyAdmin. Now try to log back in to phpMyAdmin using "root" and this time, no password. It should not let you in; done."
