PHPmyadmin update?

Postby wrecker69 » 23. August 2010 15:39

Hi, does anyone know if it is possible to update the version of PHPmyadmin in XAMPP? I got an alert that PHPmyadmin has an important update fixing critical vulnerabilities. I also noticed that the PHPmyadmin version in the latest XAMPP version is way out of date and I would like to update it to be safe. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

In the xampp folder there should be an phpmyadmin folder. Inside this folder you will find the config.inc.php file. Backup this file to another folder (eg. your Desktop) and delete everything else in the phpmyadmin folder. Then download the latest version of phpmyadmin, extract it and copy all files/folders into the old phpmyadmin folder. Also copy back the saved config.inc.php. Now you should have the latest phpMyAdmin running.

In Short:
Backup xampp\phpmyadmin\config.inc.php
Delete everything in xampp\phpmyadmin
Unzip new PMA version
Move new files into xampp\phpmyadmin
Copy old config.inc.php into xampp\phpmyadmin

There is proabably no reason you couldn't update phpMyAdmin. Just be sure to save your config.inc.php before removing the old version -- and be sure to locate the new version in the same folder it is in now.

I'd make a copy of the old install just in case :shock:

This is my personal opinion only.

I tried that and now I have no mysql server or anything.
Test it on another machine before you do anything at all.

Hello,

Following the above instructions should not affect your MySQL server in any way. You should be able to completely delete the phpmyadmin folder without bothering the MySQL server at all as it is only a web frontend for the server.

If you only mean that your updated phpmyadmin does not work, there are other ways to access the server. You can use the MySQL Workbench tool from the MySQL website or the command line tools in /xampp/mysql/bin.

Common problem updating is forgetting folder name is case sensitive.
