How to install PhpMyAdmin on Ubuntu / Debian Linux server?

What is phpMyAdmin?

phpMyAdmin is a free software tool written in PHP, designed to manage MySQL over the Internet. phpMyAdmin supports a wide range of operations on MySQL and MariaDB databases. Frequently used operations (managing databases, tables, columns, relationships, indexes, users, permissions, etc.) can be performed through the user interface, while you still can directly execute any SQL statement.

Let’s set PhpMyAdmin

Install phpMyAdmin from default Ubuntu repositories

sudo apt update
sudo apt install phpmyadmin php-mbstring php-gettext
sudo phpenmod mbstring
sudo systemctl restart apache2

Customize user authentication and privileges

sudo mysql

Configure the root account for password authentication and don’t forget to change the password password:

SELECT user,authentication_string,plugin,host FROM mysql.user;
ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'password';
