phpMyAdmin - Setup
Knew I had written something up about this -but-, as it turns out, the info
was/is in my write-up on openSuSE 11.3. So,
that info will be transferred over to here so next time I won't have to look so hard. Actually, rather
than move the code -or- re-type it here, we will just put in a reference. Then add any notes needed here
Obtain the latest version from The Project You will possibly be directed to another download site but this is a good place to start.Top
Now then, what do you do with it??
Good question. You untar it into the htdocs dir. Which on SuSE 9.2
is under /srv/www/. So, you will cd to /srv/www/htdocs and then, and then,
Use it. How??? Bring up Netscape, Firefox, or whatever Browser you are using under
and enter the following in the location space:
30 Jun 11 Well, we went to use it in SuSE 11.4 annnnddd... it did not work! Don't know if I even have it installed in this version.!? So we will have to check that out and clean up the stuff above. Unorganized?????? Yep. I am.
Well, it is NOT installed. Darn!! Here openSuSE 12.1 is out and I don't even have everything setup under SuSE 11.4 ... yet. Ok I had it installed in SuSE 11.3.
Yep. MySQL is installed. I was making some entries into the DB and I made a mistake. I wanted to get down to the low level and that is why I needed phpMyAdmin. For some reason I CAN NOT have a word with an apostrophe in it, in the comments. Words like "don't" simply blow me out of the water. I'll have to make that part of this investigation. Have put it off to long!!
Now let's see... what is the latest version of phpMyAdmin?? phpMyAdmin-3.4.2-14.1 which is not the latest
-but- is the latest for openSuSE. There is a 1-click install
of this at openSUSE Build Service.
Well, the 1-click installed it but it was NOT executable. Had to compile it!!
