Install MySQL and PHPMYADMIN
sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client phpmyadmin
mysql root password, confirm
During the installation of PHPMyAdmin you will be asked which web server is installed. Choose lighttpd.
A message will appear asking whether you want to create a dummy database. As the message states, if you know what you are going to be using the database server for or a database is already configured then you can answer no but if you are just experimenting then you can answer yes.
I recommend answering yes to this. It doesn’t do any harm.
