Bug Description

I have apache and mysql freshly installed on ubuntu 16.04.

http://127.0.0.1 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.

Expected:
EITHER it should work out of the box at http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin,
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.

Observed:
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)
