phpMyAdmin updatescript for your shell

This script will update your current phpMyAdmin to the latest version directly from your shell.

Requirements

  • wget
  • tar

Installation

Copy the script to any location of your machine.
IMPORTANT: You need to edit the script to set the correct settings.

If you want to install a cronjob, run

sh install-cronjob.sh

Settings

Open the file config.sh and edit the variables LOCATION, PMA. If you set f.e. LOCATION="/var/www" and PMA="pma" your PMA installation will be installed into "/var/www/pma".

If you want, change the compression type - "tar.gz" and "tar.bz2" are possible.

User based settings

Instead of changing the settings in the script, you can place the variables in a user based .pma-updaterc file in the home folder from the user this script runs as.

Usage

For updating phpMyAdmin to the latest version, execute the shell script like this:

sh pma-update.sh

If you want to install a specific version

sh pma-update.sh -r 3.5.0

More options

sh pma-update.sh [-hvf] [-r version]  
-h    this help  
-v    output all warnings  
-f    force download, even if this version is installed already  
-r version    choose a different version than the latest.
