I installed phpLDAPadmin and it works via http://.../phpldapadmin

Is there any good way to disable phpLDAPadmin without uninstalling it and later I can turn it on only when I need to do?

One way phpmyadmin is configured with apache is through an apache alias directive, if you comment that directive out - it should disable phpmyadmin.

To find the alias you can grep for phpmyadmin in apaches config directory, i.e.

grep -inR "phpmyadmin" /apache/config/directory

for me that gave the result

./conf-available/phpmyadmin.conf|3| Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin

From there you can just open the file and comment out the line.

so you want to take this line

Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin

and make it look like this

# Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin

That should prevent apache from responding to requests for phpmyadmin. (assuming its setup as an alias in the first place)
