Install phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu 14.04 server

 Execute below command to install phpMyAdmin

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin
sudo php5enmod mcrypt
sudo service apache2 restart

If you are running older version of Ubuntu server, run below command.

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin apache2-utils php-curl

I tried above 2 methods and both worked well.

Secure phpmyadmin

sudo nano /etc/apache2/conf-available/phpmyadmin.conf
<Directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin>
Options FollowSymLinks
DirectoryIndex index.php
AllowOverride All

Restart for new changes

sudo systemctl restart apache2

Create an htaccess File

sudo nano /usr/share/phpmyadmin/.htaccess
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Files"
AuthUserFile /etc/phpmyadmin/.htpasswd
Require valid-user

For Authentication

sudo apt-get install apache2-utils

Add user and change password

sudo htpasswd -c /etc/phpmyadmin/.htpasswd username
sudo htpasswd /etc/phpmyadmin/.htpasswd username
