    I get the following error when I try to do step 4 (everything works perfectly up till that step): Really appreciate any help!

    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    You might want to run `apt-get -f install’ to correct these:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    phpmyadmin: Depends: php5-mcrypt but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: dbconfig-common but it is not going to be installed
    Recommends: php5-gd but it is not going to be installed
    sun-java6-jre: Depends: sun-java6-bin (= 6-16-0ubuntu1.9.04) but it is not going to be installed or
    ia32-sun-java6-bin (= 6-16-0ubuntu1.9.04) but it is not installable
    Recommends: gsfonts-x11 but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try ‘apt-get -f install’ with no packages (or specify a solution).

      1) Download required phpmyadmin taking care of installed PHP version and MySQL version.

      2) untar it. i.e. # tar -xzvf phpmyadmin-xxxxx.tar.gz (please use “TAB” or type it manually)

      3) rename the resultant folder for your choice.i.e.’pma” in my case

      4) copy the folder into “/var/www/html/” so that you should have folder “pma” or “your_choice_of_phpmyadmin_folder” in “html” folder.

      5) cd to folder pma. i.e. #cd /var/www/html/pma/

      6) Create one folder in pma. i.e. use #mkdir config

      7) Copy “” to “Config” folder. i.e. you could do it manually.

      8) Rename “” to “”

      9) chmod it. i.e. #chmod o+rw /config

      10) #chmod o+rw /config/

      11) Now open web browser and call the link “https://your_Local_server_IP/pma/scripts/setup.php (note: pma & Server address should be changed according to your spec)

      12) Supply the info according to your spec

      13) Must and Should Use save button at the end

      14) Go to pma folder and rename confg to old_config and copy the to “pma” folder from “old_config” folder.

      15) Now “” file is in “pma” folder.

      16) Chmod it. i.e. #chmod 775 (make sure that you are in pma folder, else cd to pma folder before doing it)

      17) Well Done….!!! call your friend pma. i.e. “http://your_server/pma” and enjoy it.

      Let me know if you need further help. Thanks.
