phpmyadmin: getting blank page at localhost/phpmyadmin

Following the instructions at <>,
I’ve completed a reinstall of phpmyadmin 4.7.4 (after getting working reinstalls of apache 2.4, mysql 5.7, and php 7.1).

I followed Step 4 (“Install phpMyAdmin), then the first Step 6 (“Configure phpMyAdmin"), and finally the _second_ (obviously mis-numbered) Step 6 (“Install pmadb”). In that last stepI did both parts, namely:

  - create the sql tables; and 
  -  read in to mysql the file mysql_phpMyAdmin_pmaSetup.sql — with the 3 edits indicated as needed for MySQL >= 5.6.7.

I did do three things differently with

  (1) I’m using $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie’; 
       and a setting for  $cfg['blowfish_secret’] 

  (2) I used a custom value for $cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass’] instead of 'pmapass'

  (3) I’ve uncommented all the commented cfg lines that are shown at the end of the page (e.g., $cfg['Servers'][$i]['pmadb'] = 'phpmyadmin’; ).

Nonetheless, if I try to browse to http://localhost/phpmyadmin <http://localhost/phpmyadmin> …
   ** I just see a blank page.

(The same thing happens, of course, if for the URL I use a virtual host ServerName that I configured in the apache httpd-vhosts.conf file.)

Yes, apache’s httpd.conf includes both...

    <IfModule dir_module>
         DirectoryIndex index.php index.html

.. and: 

     LoadModule dir_module lib/apache2/modules/

Any ideas how to fix this?
