Next to "IfIsEvil" there should be a "DoNotUseAlias (unless necessary)".
Use the "root" directive and nested locations

location /phpMyAdmin {
root /usr/local/www;
index index.php;
# above probably not necessary as it is inherited from above
location ~ \.php$ {
fastcgi_pass ...;
...
}
}


A few notes, in no particular order:

You *should* use auth_basic [0] at the very least as exposing this
functionality the world is a very bad idea.

You should consider using "https only" for this script.

If you want to enter phpmyadmin in all lower case in the URL (it is
easier), do it via rewrite.

Consider turning off access log on at least rewritten requests once you
know it's working.

Consider using your server's FQDN, not your server name. It's less
likely potential intruders would guess it, though far from impossible.

Something like (not tested but should get you very close if not there):

server {
listen 80;
server_name foo;

location ^~ /phpmyadmin {
access_log off;
rewrite ^ /phpMyAdmin/ permanent;
}

location /phpMyAdmin {
access_log off;
rewrite ^ https://foo$request_uri? break;
}
...

}

server {
listen 443 ssl;
server name foo;

ssl_certificate /path/to/cert;
ssl_certificate_key /path/to/key;

...

location ^~ /phpmyadmin {
access_log off;
rewrite ^ /phpMyAdmin/ permanent;
}

location /phpMyAdmin {
auth_basic "Blah";
auth_basic_usr_file /path/to/auth/file;
# access_log off; # optional
location ~ \.php$ {
fastcgi_pass ...;
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param HTTPS on;
}
}
}
