Nginx phpmyadmin redirecting to / instead of /phpmyadmin upon login

Frederik Nielsen asked:

I am having issues with my phpmyadmin on my nginx install.

When I enter <ServerIP>/phpmyadmin and logs in, I get redirected to <ServerIP>/index.php?<tokenstuff> instead of <ServerIP>/phpmyadmin/index.php?<tokenstuff>

Nginx config file:

user  nginx;
worker_processes  5;

error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log warn;
pid        /var/run/nginx.pid;


events {
    worker_connections  1024;
}


http {
    include       /etc/nginx/mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    log_format  main  '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" '
                      '$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
                      '"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

    access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log  main;

    sendfile        on;
    #tcp_nopush     on;

    keepalive_timeout  2;

    #gzip  on;

    include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
}

Default.conf:

server {
    listen       80;
    server_name  _;

    #charset koi8-r;
    #access_log  /var/log/nginx/log/host.access.log  main;

    location / {
        root   /usr/share/nginx/html;
        index  index.php index.html index.htm;
    }

    #error_page  404              /404.html;

    # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
    #
    error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;
    location = /50x.html {
        root   /usr/share/nginx/html;
    }

    # proxy the PHP scripts to Apache listening on 127.0.0.1:80
    #
    #location ~ .php$ {
    #    proxy_pass   http://127.0.0.1;
    #}

    # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on 127.0.0.1:9000
    #
    location ~ .php$ {
        root           /usr/share/nginx/html;
        try_files $uri =404;
        fastcgi_pass   unix:/tmp/php5-fpm.sock;
        fastcgi_index  index.php;
        fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        include        fastcgi_params;
    }
    # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
    # concurs with nginx's one
    #
    location ~ /.ht {
        deny  all;
    }
    location /phpmyadmin {
    root /usr/share/;
    index index.php index.html index.htm;
    location ~ ^/phpmyadmin/(.+.php)$ {
        try_files $uri =404;
        root /usr/share/;
        fastcgi_pass unix:/tmp/php5-fpm.sock;
        fastcgi_index index.php;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $request_filename;
        include fastcgi_params;
        fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_script_name;
    }

    location ~* ^/phpmyadmin/(.+.(jpg|jpeg|gif|css|png|js|ico|html|xml|txt))$ {
        root /usr/share/;
    }
}
}

(Any general tips on tidying op those config files are accepted too)

My answer:


This doesn’t sound like an nginx issue. This sounds like phpMyAdmin wasn’t installed correctly and thinks that it is at / instead of /phpmyadmin. Check your phpMyAdmin configuration.
