Updated phpMyAdmin package
By jyri on Jul 22, 2008
As most of you know the Web Stack repository has had a phpMyAdmin package for a long while now. It was in fact the first package to show up on the project repository. It was very much an experiment and it delivered its files in the simplest way possible, by simply dumping everything under the Apache htdocs directory.
With the release of the drupal OpenSolaris package recently, I decided to go back and rearrange the phpMyAdmin package to follow the same model and I just pushed it out to the repository. Changes include:
1. File layout similar to drupal (and also similar to the upcoming phpPgAdmin package): static files live under /usr/phpmyadmin/ and the editable configuration is in /etc/phpmyadmin/
2. The package delivers sample Apache configuration in /etc/apache2/2.2/samples-conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
3. A stub man page is included (man phpmyadmin) and a quick-start evaluation script is also included (/usr/bin/phpmyadmin_evaluation_init).
Also, not specific to phpMyAdmin, I improved the package publishing so now the version numbers are preserved, so you'll find the package list more informative than before. For example by looking at "pkg:/firstname.lastname@example.org,5.11-1:20080722T221304Z" you can tell I updated the version of phpMyAdmin to 2.11.7.
% pfexec pkg set-authority -O http://pkg.opensolaris.org/webstack webstack % pfexec pkg refresh % pfexec pkg install pkg://webstack/phpmyadmin % man phpmyadmin
