How to upgrade phpMyAdmin in MAMP / MAMP PRO

  1. Download the latest version
  2. Unpack the archive you just downloaded, the resulting folder should be called somewhat like "phpMyAdmin-x.y-all-languages"
  3. Copy (in the Finder press ALT key to copy the file) the file "/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/phpMyAdmin/" to "phpMyAdmin-x.y-all-languages"
  4. Rename "/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/phpMyAdmin" to "/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/phpMyAdmin-OLD"
  5. Rename "/Applications/MAMP/bin/phpMyAdmin" to "/Applications/MAMP/bin/phpMyAdmin-OLD"
  6. Copy "phpMyAdmin-x.y-all-languages" to "/Applications/MAMP/bin/"
  7. Rename "/Applications/MAMP/bin/phpMyAdmin-x.y-all-languages" to "/Applications/MAMP/bin/phpMyAdmin"
  8. Copy "phpMyAdmin-x.y-all-languages" to "/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/"
  9. Rename "/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/phpMyAdmin-x.y-all-languages" to "/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/phpMyAdmin"
