Hi,

I was wondering if anybody knew a guide, or could give a step by step walkthrough for installing phpMyAdmin onto a Mac 10.5.7 OS X operating system.

I currently have the folder saved to my desktop and have renamed it to "phpMyAdmin".

I have tried following the INSTALL, but it's overly confusing and at most, it doesn't make sense!

If anybody could post a simple step by step walk through or link a decent guide, that would be great!

Thanks.

Stephen

Are you using MAMP?

If you are is it included already in the installation. You simply need to start it and point your browser to http://localhost:8888/ and you can click on the phpMyAdmin link at the top of the page.

If you don't have MAMP you should try it, it's easy and quick. http://www.mamp.info/en/mamp/index.html

My closing recommendation is to install MAMP like I initially suggested. It has everything that is needed and it's simple.
