    I`m at work at the moment so I can`t try anything.
    And yes localhost works.
    And I think that I find what the problem is on other site I found that I have to edit
    /etc/apache2/apache2.conf. and add this line Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf.
    This sound familiar to me because this is second time that I`m installing LAMP server and the first time it worked fine.
    Thanks anyway.

    it was easy for me. just did sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin and went to http://localhost/phpmyadmin and it was up and running. do you have an SQL running?

    For some reason I have to add this line /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf to
    /etc/apache2/apache2.conf. Previous time I had installed phpmyadmin it work after the install.
    But now it is ok.

    At the end of the file. IMO there is no difference where you put it. It is important that apache2 had loaded the conf file.

    if you use ubuntu and install it by apt-get a dir in /etc is created called phpmyadmin with a apache.conf file that essentially is setup to match the apache2.conf file when using the ubuntu apache2 package.
