Hi James,

You did all right.

Unfortunatly there's no URI rewriting functinality in Unit.
It's planned for the future releases.

Currently, you should either put your phpMyAdmin sources into
the "pma" subdirectory or just create a symlink (pma -> ..).

If you're using nginx in front of Unit, then you can also
do such rewriting inside nginx like this:

  location /pma/ {
      proxy_pass http://<unit_ip>:<unit_pma_port>/;
