How update phpmyadmin with epel repository?

Post by sigolo » 2014/10/27 11:18:27

Hi, phpmyadmin tells me that there is a new version but when I go to install it with:

Code: Select all

yum update
appears to download and install the new package phpmyadmin but then I always say that there is a new version.
The first time I installed it with the EPEL repository.

By this command:

Code: Select all

rpm -qa | grep php
I see that the package installed is the "phpMyAdmin-4.2.10-1.el7.noarch"
but phpmyadmin says that I'm using ver. 4.2.10.0.
Any suggestions?
Thanks so much.

Don't mix and match update mechanisms. If you install from rpm then use an rpm to update, don't use the built-in update mechanisms within a product to download updates that are not part of an RPM package afterwards.

You are right that the phpMyAdmin package in EPEL7 currently is 4.2.10-1.el7 but if you --enablerepe=epel-testing then you can update to 4.2.10.1-1.el7. EPEL packages have to go through a period of user acceptance and testing before they are promoted to the main repo. If you temporarily enable the -testing repo, update phpMyAdmin then test it, you can provide feedback via the normal EPEL channels to enable the newer testing package to be promoted to the main repo.

Thank you TrevorH,
If I have understood you tell me the version which is now available on the main EPEL repo (phpMyAdmin-4.2.10-1) is not the latest version which can be found instead in EPEL-testing (phpMyAdmin-4.2.10.1- 1) and the phpmyadmin program say. It will arrive in the main repo in a bit of time. That's right?
If so, I did not realize the importance of that dot ..10.1 / 10-1 :-)).
I understand the importance of temporarily install EPEL-testing for feedback. I will do it.
Thank you again.
