How to update phpMyAdmin to the latest version in cyberpanel

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to update your PhpMyAdmin in CyberPanel to the latest version.

NOTICE: Current version compatible with PHP 7.1 and newer and MySQL/MariaDB 5.5 and newer.

1.
log in to your server as the root user
ssh root@YOUR_IP_ADDRESS.

2.
Go to
cd /usr/local/CyberCP/public/

3.
Back up your phpmyadmin folder.
cp -r /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin.old

4.
Remove current phpmyadmin folder
rm -rf phpmyadmin

5.
Install wget
sudo yum install wget

6.
Download the new version from the PHPMyAdmin website, and 5.2.0 is the latest at this moment, so use the wget command.
Go to this website in order to find the link to the latest download later on.

wget https://files.phpmyadmin.net/phpMyAdmin/5.2.0/phpMyAdmin-5.2.0-all-languages.zip

7.
Unzip it
unzip phpMyAdmin-5.2.0-all-languages.zip

8.
Rename the folder so cyberpanel can recognize it
mv phpMyAdmin-5.2.0-all-languages phpmyadmin

9.
Copy config files from phpmyadmin.old into the new folder. (Config and Auto Login using CyberPanel)

cp -r /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin.old/config.inc.php /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin
cp -r /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin.old/phpmyadminsignin.php /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin
cp -r /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin.old/tmp /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin

10.
Remove temp files in the twig folder.

cd /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin/tmp/twig
rm -rf *

(If your PHPMyAdmin says it cannot be accessed, you may give the folder 755 permission as show below)’

11.
Run the command below

chown -R lscpd:lscpd /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin/tmp
chmod -R 755 /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin/tmp/twig

12.
If changing it to 755 does not work you can continue to change folder permissions to 777.

chmod -R 777 /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin/tmp/twig

13.

cd /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin/tmp/twig

14.
Delete the old phpmyadmin folder:
rm -rf /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin.old

15.
Now access your PHPMyAdmin to check out the link below and change your port if you use another one.

Better to use the official version with cyberpanel. And yes you gave the right things to update

True, just giving a tutorial for people who might benefit from using an up to date PHPMyAdmin before CyberPanel gets the latest version :slight_smile:

@usmannasir Do you think there is a way to integrate the commands I got over or a similar setup when upgrading CyberPanel?

You can even clone the GitHub page Master to the folder and use that?
That way it’s more automated and people won’t complain of outdated phpMyAdmin anymore, they would then just upgrade CyberPanel.

git clone https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin.git

Just stole this into mine, very good idea :clap:

I was reviewing it to finish the implementation here.
Noticed the 777 permissions.
Here I manually created the folder so the behavior may be different but, you don’t need to change its permissions but rather the owner, as it’s not the root but lscpd whos using the folder:

chown -R lscpd:lscpd /usr/local/CyberCP/public/phpmyadmin/tmp

Default permission for that folder is 755 also, but I figured 777 didn’t change much anyways :slight_smile:

I added it to the original post, and changed it a little on part 11 and up.
