  1. Quick bit of info, if like me, you receive an error when following the exact steps – after the wget, you’ll see:
    [root@mymachine]# yum install phpPgAdmin
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
    * base: mirrors.usinternet.com
    * extras: mirror.team-cymru.org
    * updates: mirrors-pa.sioru.com
    Setting up Install Process
    No package phpPgAdmin available.
    Error: Nothing to do

    Do this instead:
    [root@mymachine]# yum install pgdg-centos91-9.1-4.noarch.rpm

    THEN you can yum install the package name… It’s just that the rpm needed to be installed for the repo before continuing.

    • Hey bro, thank you. I worked for me, but I am having a problem to log in on phpPgAdmin. I created a new super user through terminal, but I cannot log in on phpPgAdmin. Can you help with this?
