Publish and save it.
Complete documentation on implementation available.

This module is a fork of the original JooMyAdminLite module for Joomla 1.5 from Matthias Krauser of schwarz.de.
I have converted it for Joomla 2.5
Often extension installs fail or you find that a table needs editing in the database. This extension will make it quick and easy to get there.
It installs easy and is simple to configure.
The developer is great on support with his other products and always is quick to respond.
Highly recommended extension and developer.
Actually my default language is English, but I had the same problem. I guess the original phpMyAdmin is develop in Germany that is the default (I am assuming).
I fixed it by going to my hosts control panel and instead of clicking on the link to phpMyAdmin I just copied it and pasted it, and that resolved the issue.
