I'm very new to PostgreSQL and PgAdmin.  Also have relatively little Linux

I've scoured both this forum and the rest of the web via Google, and am
pretty confident that this issue isn't answered elsewhere.

My two issues are:

1. Installing PgAdmin

After a lengthy search, I chose to download the v5.03 rpm found here:

I installed it directly from Mozilla, and the process took care of all the
dependencies with no errors reported.

But I'm not certain I have installed the correct package, because of the
second issue...

2. Launching PgAdmin

I cannot figure out how actually to launch the PgAdmin GUI.  Browsing the
directories on my Linux box, I see loads of PHP and Javascript files in the
/usr/share/phpPgAdmin directory, including one called "index.php" - this
appears to be the starting point.  However, it looks like it's intended to
be embedded in a web page, yet there's no HTML document in this directory -
or anywhere else that I can see.

I've obviously overlooked something fundamental, so would be very grateful
for some help.

Many thanks in advance,
