I presume if you try to access the server from a webrowser, you see the
Apache intro page? 

If you do, try installing phpmyadmin and seeing if it will run.

You could also try:

$ dpkg-reconfigure <package> 
where <package> = php5 php5-mysql apache2 etc.

If packages have been installed at different times they may not have
been configured to work together properly.
