    Hi,

    I just hatched out of my egg so please bare with me.

    I have successfully installed MAMP and WordPress. There are no issues whatsoever and I plan to use this setup for local development only.

    When I click the phpMyAdmin tab I notice the following message “A newer version of phpMyAdmin is available and you should consider upgrading. The newest version is 3.5.7, released on 2013-02-15.”

    How do I install the latest update?

    It would appear I need to go here: http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/index.php and download the latest version and decompress it.

    Do I then simply drag and drop the contents into MAMP/bin/phpMyAdmin?

    Here are the specs for my setup:

    Database server
    Server: Localhost via UNIX socket
    Software: MySQL
    Software version: 5.5.29 – Source distribution
    Protocol version: 10
    User: root@localhost
    Server charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)

    Web server
    Apache/2.2.23 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.23 OpenSSL/0.9.8r DAV/2 PHP/5.4.10
    Database client version: libmysql – 5.5.29
    PHP extension: mysql

    phpMyAdmin
    Version information: 3.5.5, latest stable version: 3.5.7

    Thanks for your patience and I appreciate you all supporting this most basic of questions.

    I’m no good with complex server stuff really but the method you described of simply replacing the directory in which it was installed with the new version seems to make sense and has clearly been used to good effect in the past: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7971026/upgrade-version-of-phpmyadmin-in-mamp

    Maybe I’m out of my depth here (so someone please correct if needed) but I don’t think it’s super urgent to update phpMyAdmin anyway as it is simply an admin interface that sits in front of MySQL and there – in the database itself – is where any security holes would be exposed I think.

    This was my first post here and you guys are terrific! I have to gobble up the links you sent me but this community is great. I already downloaded all the podcasts and will watch them over time.

    I just got into web design very recently and it’s very exciting indeed.

    Thanks TomRogers123 and Paulie_D!

    ok, so I did everything as per http://wiki.phpmyadmin.net/pma/Upgrading. I don’t see any error messages or glaring issues.

    Here are the new specs after the fact:

    Database server
    Server: Localhost via UNIX socket
    Software: MySQL
    Software version: 5.5.29 – Source distribution
    Protocol version: 10
    User: root@localhost
    Server charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)

    Web server
    Apache/2.2.23 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.23 OpenSSL/0.9.8r DAV/2 PHP/5.4.10
    Database client version: libmysql – 5.5.29
    PHP extension: mysql

    phpMyAdmin
    Version information: 3.5.7 (up to date)

    Is there any way to test things as it were. I’ll remind you that I just installed and have not developed anything yet.

    I’ll assume everything is fine because it appears to be the case. I’ll keep a backup of MAMP/bin/phpMyAdmin

    PS I like the TMGTFY response Paulie. ;)

    Ah yes, forgot to mention this, it’s kind of curious.

    After extracting “phpMyAdmin-3.5.7-all-languages.7z” sourced from http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/downloads.php I found an invisible file named,

    .travis.yml

    I didn’t copy it because generally if one did not have invisibles showing it would not get copied. It’s contents are:

    language: php
    php:
    – “5.4”
    – “5.3”
    before_script: ./scripts/generate-mo –quiet
    script: phpunit –configuration phpunit.xml.nocoverage

    Does anyone know what this is for?

    Daniel will likely tell me to google it so here it is: http://about.travis-ci.org/docs/user/build-configuration/

    I don’t know what it all means.

    Should I copy the .travis.yml file to MAMP/bin/phpMyAdmin folder even though it would normally get missed with a regular drag and drop copy using the Finder? My gut tells me I should.
