since apache2.4 package it's impossible to use phpmyadmin package, apache fails to start, with these error messages :

AH00526: Syntax error on line 7 of /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-phpmyadmin.conf:
apachectl[4743]: Invalid command 'php_admin_value', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

I don't find the solution in archlinux wiki page

Additional info:
* package version(s) phpmyadmin 4.1.8-1, apache 2.4.7-1, php 5.5.10-1, php-apache 5.5.10-1, php-fpm 5.5.10-1

* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
- install apache 2.4
- install php and php-fpm
- install phpmyadmin

if you follow the archlinux wikipage ( phpmyadmin ) apache 2.4 won't start
This task depends upon

It's not a problem with the package, but with your configuration. Look at our forums for assistance. Closing.

I meet with the exact same annoyance that presented in this bug report and there is no obvious solution. I think the bug should really be reported against phpmyadmin as it probably needs an update of the configuration file.

Please take note that my configuration is the one provided by the apache packages where I just added my server name and the request to include the httpd-phpmyadmin.conf

the workaround: set the httpd-phpmyadmin.conf file like this :

Alias /phpmyadmin "/usr/share/webapps/phpMyAdmin"
<Directory "/usr/share/webapps/phpMyAdmin">
AllowOverride All
Options FollowSymlinks
Require all granted

and check if in /etc/php/php.ini the open_basedir option contains these paths : /usr/share/pear/ and /usr/share/webapps/
