    Unhappy Installing phpMyAdmin

    I tryed to install "phpMyAdmin" through webmin, but I got an error message :

    Install failed :

    error: Failed dependencies:
    mod_php is needed by phpMyAdmin-2.6.0-4.8.noarch
    php4-mysql is needed by phpMyAdmin-2.6.0-4.8.noarch
    php4-bz2 is needed by phpMyAdmin-2.6.0-4.8.noarch
    php4-gd is needed by phpMyAdmin-2.6.0-4.8.noarch
    php4-zlib is needed by phpMyAdmin-2.6.0-4.8.noarch
    pwgen is needed by phpMyAdmin-2.6.0-4.8.noarch
    rpmlib(PatchRPMs) <= 3.0.6-1 is needed by phpMyAdmin-2.6.0-4.8.noarch

    After this I first simply tryed to install the missing dependencies as listed above.
    But, the install of those failed to because of missing dependencies .

    I hope someone can help whit this issue - thanks -

    Just install it via zip, or tar file.

    Also, just to be sure, you do have PHP installed?

    JTY ,
    did you read my post ? the fact that my install failed implies that the install
    process had begun . As for php, sure v4.3.11 is installed.

    Webmin is trying to install the RPM release, which will do dependency checks. However, RPM is only aware of installed software, if it too was installed via RPM.

    One problem with installing something phpMyAdmin via RPM, it may not end up where your web root is. Which is why, it's typically better to use the tar release.

    Not to mention, that RPM for phpMyAdmin is also a very old release.

    Its pretty easy, basicly get the .tar.gz or something, extract it, copy files to your webroot, edit the and your ready to go. Adding an alias in httpd.conf is option, but a nice touch if you have many domains.

    If you have shell access, you can try these commands.

    mkdir tmp
    cd tmp
    gunzip phpMyAdmin-2.6.2-pl1.tar.gz
    tar -xf phpMyAdmin-2.6.2-pl1.tar
    cp -R phpMyAdmin-2.6.2-pl1/* /path/to/your/web/dir/mysql
    cd /path/to/your/web/dir/mysql
    mcedit /path/to/your/web/dir/mysql/

    Hope this helps some.
