I added this,I verify it, everything is correct, my site works fine but
accessing http://mydomain.com/phpmyadmin still doesn’t work, a 500

Hi se7en,

Your location line is incorrect and you may need a line to send php over
also. Try the following inside your server directive.

index index.php index.htm index.html;
location ^~ /phpmyadmin/ {
root /usr/share;
include /???/fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0:9002;
}
location ~ .php {
include /???/fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9002;
}

Don’t forget to replace the ??? with the correct path - mine is
/etc/nginx/ and check that phpmyadmin
has been installed in /usr/share/phpmyadmin - or adjust the root.

Regards

Ian

I don’t know what tot say, here is my config file (after the sample with
subdomain that works) but it still doesn’t work. phpmyadmin is installed
in /usr/share/phpmyadmin and site works fine, so it’s no error in my
config file. it works only when I create a new vhost file like this and
access phpmyadmin as a subdomain

server {
listen 80;
server_name phpmyadmin.domainname.com;
access_log /home/apps/logs/phpmyadmin.access_log;
error_log /home/apps/logs/phpmyadmin.error_log;

location / {
     root /usr/share/phpmyadmin;
     index index.php;
}

include /etc/nginx/fastcgi.conf;
}
}

   }

I think i got it, if i add this, it works but the images of phpmyadmin
don’t show, maybe a permission issue ?
ndex index.php index.htm index.html;
location   ^~ /phpmyadmin/ {
 root /usr/share;
 include /usr/local/nginx/conf/fastcgi_params;
 fastcgi_pass 127.0.0:9002;
}
location ~ .php$ {
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9002;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /usr/share/phpmyadmin$fastcgi_script_name;
include /usr/local/nginx/conf/fastcgi_params;

Improbable and easy to check - the server only needs read access.

More likely IMO, is that phpmyadmin is asking for them in the wrong
place.
Take a look at the source of a phpmyadmin page.

My logon screen contains

<img src="./themes/original/img/logo_right.png
view-source:http://212.13.194.210/phpmyadmin/themes/original/img/logo_right.png"
id=“imLogo” … etc

that is served from

/src/share/phpmyadmin/themes/original/img/logo_right.png

If you request

themes/original/img/logo_right.png
and
phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/themes/original/img/logo_right.png

you will find out which.

dex index.php index.htm index.html;
location ^~ /phpmyadmin/ {
root /usr/share;
include /usr/local/nginx/conf/fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0:9002;

Did you mean 127.0.0.1:9002?

}

location ~ .php$ {
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9002;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /usr/share/phpmyadmin$fastcgi_script_name;

This ^^^ line is redundant because there is a line containing

fastcgi_params SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;

in the included file below, that will result in the same thing.

Hello!
I had the same problem and Igor said that nginx does not handle (yet?)
nested locations. So you have to write in this way:

location /phpmyadmin/ {
alias /usr/share/phpmyadmin/;
index index.php index.html index.htm;
location ~ ^/phpmyadmin/(.+.php)$ {
alias /usr/share/phpmyadmin/$1;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9002;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $request_filename;
include fastcgi_params;
}
}

Bye,
a
