How To Install phpMyAdmin on Manjaro 20

Install phpMyAdmin on Manjaro 20

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install phpMyAdmin on Manjaro 20. For those of you who didn’t know, phpMyAdmin is a graphical MySQL/MariaDB administration tool that can be used to create, edit and delete databases. phpMyAdmin provides the most useful functions to interact with the MySQL database.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of phpMyAdmin on a Manjaro 20 (Nibia).


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Manjaro 20.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
