Recently, I needed to upgrade phpMyAdmin on my installation of MAMP. The instructions on the MAMP blog (see the post here) didn’t seem to cover my system set-up in OS X 10.8.5 so here is what I did to upgrade.
After downloading the latest stable version of phpMyAdmin from here, I stopped MAMP and got ready to follow the instructions to upgrade.
The instructions over at the MAMP blog make reference to a file and location that I couldn’t find on OS X 10.8.5. This is mentioned in step 3. The place I was looking for was here:
My path was Macintosh HD > Applications > MAMP > bin > phpMyAdmin > config.inc.php.
With MAMP stopped, I copied over my config.inc.php file to the newly-downloaded directory then renamed my phpMyAdmin directory to phpMyAdmin-OLD. I renamed the new directory (still on my desktop) to phpMyAdmin and copied this over to my MAMP directory, restarted MAMP and everything seems to be fine.MAMP MAMP, OS X 10.8, phpMyAdmin
