How To Remove phpmyadmin from Google Compute Engine Instance

Here is the command your looking for. I just did this to secure my Google Compute Engine Instance:

sudo apt-get purge phpmyadmin

You can choose the options to remove the phpmyadmin databases from mysql as well, which is what I did just now from my wordpress instance.

This is helpful after you get your site migrated and no longer need phpmyadmin installed.

Hackers go elsewhere. 🙂
