Can't access phpmyadmin after installation

I'm trying to install phpmyadmin on my new server, following this guide:


apt-get install phpmyadmin
nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

then added phpmyadmin to apache configuration:

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

and restarted apache:

service apache2 restart

All this by ssh...
But now when i try to access: x.x.x.x/phpmyadmin all that i get is that my browser downloads a file... Can someone help with this?
