[solved] phpMyAdmin not in Debian 10 main repository?

Postby Onsemeliot » 2020-03-31 07:57

I may remember this wrong but I think I always could set-up Debian with a readily configured webserver including phpMyAdmin. This time I forgot to select the option when installing the system. So I had to install it later on. It was a smooth ride to install the Apache server, MariaDB and PHP. But this is not true for phpMyAdmin for Debian 10. Everything I can find is guides for how to setup the software downloaded from the project web page. I would prefer using the version in the main repository (to get automatic security updates) but there doesn't seem to be one:
Code: Select all
# apt install phpmyadmin
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package phpmyadmin is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'phpmyadmin' has no installation candidate

Am I missing something or is it really necessary to do this by hand now?

I mean, I found a guide, but without an "installation candidate" this obviously can't work.

The phpmyadmin package was removed from buster before it was released as Debian 10 because the tcpdf build-dependency was missing thanks to https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=915286

There are some efforts ongoing to port the testing/unstable versions to buster-backports: https://salsa.debian.org/phpmyadmin-tea ... n/issues/1

Until then perhaps try either phpliteadmin or adminer, which are the suggested alternatives.
