phpMyAdmin updatescript for your shell
This script will update your current phpMyAdmin to the latest version directly from your shell.
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
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.
For updating phpMyAdmin to the latest version, execute the shell script like this:
If you want to install a specific version
sh pma-update.sh -r 3.5.0
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.
