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 have the ability to directly execute any SQL statement.
Let's set up 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:
Configure the root account for authentication with a password and don't forget to change the "password":
SELECT user,authentication_string,plugin,host FROM mysql.user;
ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'password';
