Many operating systems already include a phpMyAdmin package and will automatically keep it updated, however these versions are sometimes slightly outdated and therefore may be missing the latest features. Additionally, the configuration process varies widely by package and may not adhere to the official phpMyAdmin documentation. That being said, it is usually the quickest and easiest way of keeping an updated installation. Please contact your OS vendor for more information. Some additional information is also available in our documentation. If you just want to try phpMyAdmin in a virtual machine, you might want to check the available software appliances which provide phpMyAdmin.

If you do not find a suitable package or wish to install your own phpMyAdmin, you can download one of the following kits. Please note that each version has requirements for the minimum PHP and MySQL versions.

Since July 2015 all phpMyAdmin releases are cryptographically signed by the releasing developer. You should verify that the signature matches the archive you have downloaded. Verification instructions are placed in our documentation in the Verifying phpMyAdmin releases chapter.

Older Releases

You can find older releases on separate files page. You can also get them from our Git repository (check developer information for instructions). Older releases are unsupported.

Installing phpMyAdmin

The full process of installing phpMyAdmin is described in our manual. You can also find information there about how to install phpMyAdmin on your Linux distribution.

Official Docker image

The phpMyAdmin team maintains an official Docker image for phpMyAdmin. It is fully documented in our manual and you can install it using:

docker pull phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin

Installing using Composer

Due to technical limitations, we're currently unable to publish phpMyAdmin directly in Packagist repository, but it is possible to install phpMyAdmin from our own Composer repository. Please check our manual for more information.


Software appliances are becoming a popular way of distributing software. They are distributed as an image, which can be directly used by system (be it ISO image for bootable CD or virtual disks for some type of virtualization).

There are quite many appliances which provide phpMyAdmin as a management tool for MySQL. It usually comes as part of LAMP stack but there might be other offerings as well. Please check your favorite appliance provider, ISV or app store for it. Some of the appliances are listed on Wikipedia.

Supported versions

Generally only last stable branch is supported, but there are LTS branches to support older PHP versions. Current stable branch is supported for bug fixes, LTS branches for security fixes only.
