Configuring MySQL and phpmyadmin

Now we can test if the Apache web server works well, to do it we have to introduce in the browser of another computer on our network the server IP, and if all goes well we will see the message “It works!” on the screen. If not we have to review the steps above.

sudo nano /etc/mysql/my.cnf (To edit the MySQL configuration file)

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin
