Using YUM :
Step 1 » Install/enable EPEL repository . You can find latest repository here ( http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/repoview/epel-release.html )
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ivh http://ftp.jaist.ac.jp/pub/Linux/Fedora/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
Step 2 » Now update repositories
[root@localhost ~]# yum check-update
Step 3 » After updating yum repositories , now you can install phpmyadmin package
[root@localhost ~]# yum install phpMyAdmin
This command will install phpmyadmin package along with dependencies . please type the package name exactly as phpMyAdmin ( ” M” and “A” –> Uppercase )
Step 4 » Now restart httpd service
[root@localhost ~]# service httpd restart
Now open the path in your browser ( Eg-> http://192.168.1.1/phpMyAdmin ) . You can see the below screen after entering Mysql root username and password .
» #2002 – Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock’ (2)
The server is not responding (or the local server’s socket is not correctly configured).
( This means your mysql server service is stopped , you must start the service “service mysql start”)
» You don’t have permission to access /phpMyAdmin/ on this server.
Open /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf file and find the lines “Deny from All ” and comment those lines and restart httpd service
