You can also run this command to update phpmyadmin :

sh /scripts/mysql_phpmyadmin_update

For manual update follow this steps :

Lets get started with update procedure :

Step 1 Updating/Installing

Backup the current installation :

mv /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/pma /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/pma.baks

Downloading phpMyadmin from official source :

cd /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/
wget https://files.phpmyadmin.net/phpMyAdmin/4.9.2/phpMyAdmin-4.9.2-all-languages.zip

Installing phpMyadmin :

unzip phpMyAdmin-4.9.2-all-languages.zip
mv phpMyAdmin-4.9.2-all-languages pma

Done you’ve updated the phpmyadmin

Step 2 Configuration

How to Setup and Configure blowfish_secret in phpMyadmin on CWP

Navigate to /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/pma

cd /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/pma

Rename phpmyadmin sample config file to main config file :

mv config.sample.inc.php config.inc.php

Then edit config.inc.php file to setup blow_fish with your favorite editor through SFTP or you can do it via command :

cd /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/pma
nano config.inc.php

Now find this phrases :

$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = ''; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */

Now we’ll generate blowfish password hash :

Go to this site and generate a hash by entering secure password (random words) : http://www.passwordtool.hu/blowfish-password-hash-generator

Once you generated the hash copy and add this to phpmyadmin config file :


Add the hash to config :

$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = '$2a$07$soz2eS3qMvw1PdzMlUwYpOK8AuzH3I3gyoN7ncnSkblZ7iEfcx3Qm'; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */

save the file and exit.

Done you’ve configured phpmyadmin and blow_fish secret successfully. login to phpmyadmin for the check.

After successful installation remove the old backup folder :

rm -rf /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/pma.baks

after updating i get:

The $cfg[‘TempDir’] (./tmp/) is not accessible. phpMyAdmin is not able to cache templates and will be slow because of this.

how to fix it??

Just go to:

cd /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/

chown -R cwpsvc:cwpsvc pma

And you will not see that anymore.

cd /usr/local/cwpsrv/var/services/

chown -R cwpsvc:cwpsvc pma
