Upgrading to the latest phpMyadmin version on Debian server

Usually, a simple apt-get install phpmyadmin would update the phpmyadmin version you are using. But the repositories do not contain the latest version of phpmyadmin.

Upgrading to the latest phpMyadmin version on Debian:

On downloads page on phpmyadmin official website, we can find a guy who maintains phpmyadmin packages on launchpad. Those packages are made for Ubuntu, but they will work fine on Debian. So, we add the servers to our sources.list:

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Paste the following lines to the end of the file:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nijel/phpmyadmin/ubuntu maverick main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/nijel/phpmyadmin/ubuntu maverick main

And update phpmyadmin:

apt-get update

apt-get install phpmyadmin

That's it!

I noticed the same PPA myself and sadly it's still far-away outdated; 3.5.2 newest, there.
