Automatic_updates

Isaac Bennetch edited this page Nov 8, 2016 · 1 revision

This is a draft design document to plan an implementation for automatic updates to phpMyAdmin.

Target version: A target version has not yet been determined.

Objective: It would be helpful for users if phpMyAdmin were able to automatically update itself when a new version is available.

Potential pitfalls or difficulties:

  • Shared hosting situations or shared installations
  • Verifying the downloaded file
  • Will require access to the server (for instance, WordPress requires clear FTP for similar functionality)
  • We must preserve a user's config.inc.php
  • If we do the install in-place, how do we roll back from failure
  • How do we deal with permission issues
