    Hi,


    I have installed WHM version 11.40.0 (build 22) on a VPS and I want to upgrade the phpMyAdmin. Currently the system has installed the 4.1.8 version, but the latest stable version is the 4.2.5.

    How can I update to the latest version.When I try the /usr/local/cpanel/bin/updatephpmyadmin --force it doesn't upgrade at the latest version. It stays in the same version.

    I am not familiar with WHM so much. Can you please help?

    Thanx in advance.

    If you want a different version of phpMyAdmin than comes with cPanel & WHM, you'll need to install your own copy.

    I am seeing this message too:
    A newer version of phpMyAdmin is available and you should consider upgrading. The newest version is 4.2.6, released on 2014-07-17.
    I want to make the upgrade, I have:
    CENTOS 6.5 x86_64
    WHM 11.44.0

    I do not know how to upgrade the PHPMyAdmin or if it will do it in the cPanel update will do the job for that.
    Please help.

    You will not always see the most recent version of phpMyAdmin included with cPanel. We consider and test newer versions of phpMyAdmin as they are released for inclusion with cPanel. You can install your own local copy of phpMyAdmin onto a website if you prefer to use a different version.

    Thank you.

    Forgive me for resurrecting a slightly older thread... Michael, you wrote
    .

    In WHM 11.46.1 (build 4), phpMyAdmin is version 4.0.10.6, but version 4.3.5 is current. Have you been trying to get that newer version working? Has it been tested? Are there any plans to work with that newer version?

    Not trying to be a pain, I'm just trying to find out if cpanel is actively looking into upgrading PMA or not.

    Oh, and the same thing applies to the Munin plugin, which is several versions old as well.

    Thanks! :)

    That's all fine and dandy, but if we want to have the latest stable version across all our websites (not just one) on the server, how can we get that?

    And when was the last time you guys "considered and tested" newer versions of phpMyAdmin?

    The current version on WHM 11.48.2 is 4.0.10.7.

    The latest version available is 4.4.0.

    When are you going to take a look at that one, for example?

    Hopefully not before they release v5 or something...

    And is there a way to install the newest phpMyAdmin (or specific version) and replace the phpMyAdmin on WHM all together (or keep it backed up in case)?

    So any update on this? We are years behind and I refuse to believe that you "test" something when phpmyadmin was not updated in years in cPanel.

    cPanel was running a more recent version until not too long ago, but they discovered that it wasn't compatible with MySQL 5.1 and instead of making the logical choice of installing the more recent version for MySQL 5.5+ users and the older version for older MySQL, they downgraded everyone instead. I didn't think that wise, but cPanel does what they want.

    Huh?

    That's kinda backward... but I guess they wanted to preserve the compatibility with anyone who didn't want to upgrade their MySQL from 5.1.

    Would be nice to have an option to upgrade phpMyAdmin (or downgrade, if need be) in WHM just like we have an option for upgrading/downgrading the other components. Shouldn't be that hard to implement that either with a few checks for versions and compatibility sake.
