<p>Installing phpMyAdmin on a Windows computer will vary based on the existing environment. This article will tell the step-by-step process of installing phpMyAdmin using the following methods.</p>
<li>Manual installation on top of the existing Apache server.</li>
<li>Installation via WAMP package.</li>
<p>Method 2 is an easier one, which will automatically install as part of the WAMP package. Not only WAMP but all packages like XAMPP and LAMP also have the advantage of reducing the effort.</p>
<p>In a previous tutorial, we have seen <a href="">how to install XAMPP</a>. It helped to set up an Apache, PHP, and MySQL database server environment on a server.</p>

<h2>Manual installation on top of the existing Apache server</h2>
<p>We have seen the advantages of phpMyAdmin managing databases through a web interface.</p>
<p>Make sure that you have installed the following before start installing phpMyAdmin.</p>
<li>Apache server</li>
<li>MySQL server</li>
<p>Then, follow the below steps.</p>
<li>Step 1: <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Download the phpMyAdmin</a> project from its official website. <span data-preserver-spaces="true">Download the zip file to your browser by clicking the required downloadable.</span></li>
<li>Step 2: Unzip the downloaded zip and copy the phpMyAdmin project.</li>
<li>Step 3: <span data-preserver-spaces="true">Move the phpMyAdmin extracted folder to the Apache web root, the </span><em><span data-preserver-spaces="true">htdocs</span></em><span data-preserver-spaces="true">&nbsp;directory.</span></li>
<li>Step 4: Open the <a href="">php.ini file</a> found in the PHP config root. Make sure that the file has administrator permission to edit the config.</li>
<li>Step 5: Uncomment the following extensions to enable them.
<li>Step 6: Restart Apache and MySQL servers.</li>
<li>Step 7: Run the phpMyAdmin application as same as you run other PHP applications on the Apache web root.
<li>An example web address is http://localhost/phpmyadmin/. It will show the PHPMyAdmin home by listing all the databases.</li>
<h2>Installation via WAMP package</h2>
<p>We have seen a seven-step process of installing phpMyAdmin manually. Now, let’s see how the WAMP package provides an easy way of achieving this.</p>
<li>Step 1: <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Choose the suitable WAMP installer</a> and click “download directly” -&gt; “Download Latest Version”</li>
<li>Step 2: Double-click the downloaded WAMP installer and proceed with the wizards asking the following.
<li>Choose language.</li>
<li>Accept the agreement.</li>
<li>Accept or configure the default browser.</li>
<li>Accept or Configure the default editor.</li>
<li>Step 3: Click “Finish” when the wizard prompts.</li>
<li>Step 4: Open the WAMP tool and choose phpMyAdmin from the menu.</li>
<p>Thus, the phpMyAdmin is installed simply by this method.</p>
<p>Once installed, the phpMyAdmin will help manage the database easily via a web application interface. Previously, we saw steps to use the frequently used tools of this application. E.g., <a href="">How to create a database using phpMyAdmin?</a></p>
<p>This application helps connect a local or remote database by logging in via the landing login panel.</p>
