If you want http://ipaddress/phpmyadmin and http://ipaddress/adminer to
both work, you will probably want a single server{} block with all of
the configuration. for the reason.

After you've done that, configure each application independently,
probably by wrapping the normal "it's a php script" configuration within
location blocks like

  location ^~ /adminer/

After that, when you test, you can read the nginx logs to see exactly
why the 404 was produced.

Good luck with it,
