# Ubuntu – Most of steps from LAMP>phptheadmin are complete, yet localhost/phptheadmin shows lots of code

I have installed and restarted and purged and re-installed everything 5 times over, edited .conf files, modified index.html, established htpasswd, etc… and I think I have most things ironed out, but still when I load http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ it shows a bunch of code. I am a complete buffoon with code I haven't seen before, but the page starts out with:

addJSON( 'options', PMA_RecentTable::getInstance()->getHtmlSelectOption() ); exit; } if (\$GLOBALS['PMA_Config']->isGitRevision()) { if


Blah blah General Settings, blah blah blah

I know in the past I have gotten phpmyadmin to work, but it has been a long time, but I know this can't be right…

This is a related question that I may have transcended, yet things are still not working…

it may be interesting to note that sometimes www.icanhazip.com shows what I understand to be my public ip address, a series of 4 numbers, separated by 3 periods, or sometimes like now, it shows 8 series of alpha-numeric characters separated by 7 colons.
