    Hey great guide but im stuck at step 8 I did everything but when I point to my IP in my case its it shows the welcome screen of “Welcome to nginx!” when i try it shows the 404 Not Found i then went to winscp to see if theres a symlink and i did see /usr/share/nginx/www which is the symlink to /usr/share/nginx not sure what im doing wrong

    Thank you

      If the root location of your vhost points to /srv/www/html, then make a symlik to phpmyadmin with the following command: ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /srv/www/html/
