Bug Description

I have apache and mysql freshly installed on ubuntu 16.04. shows Apache's "It works" page.

I installed phpmyadmin with "sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin".
I even got a prompt that asked me whether I'm using Apache or Nginx as a web server and I chose Apache.

EITHER it should work out of the box at,
OR at the end of the installation, there should be a message telling me what to do (e.g. edit some Apache config file) to completely enable phpmyadmin in Apache.

None of those happened. It does not work out of the box and it didn't give me a fucking clue of what I am supposed to do.

I'm pretty sure I just need to
1. create a file under /etc/apache2/conf-available with a line in it include'ing /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf (which the package installer should have done for me)
2. enable it (which the package installer should either have done for me or told me I need to)
