Hi Darrel,

After doing what Hannes has suggested :
open terminal
sudo tasksel
select LAMP - use arrow keys to get there, then space bar to select
 press OK  - use <TAB> to get there

once this is installed, then install phpmyadmin via synaptic or in the terminal  : sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

phpmyadmin is in the repositories
