Unable to Install PHPMyAdmin on CentOS 6

Michael Smith asked:

I am attempting to update all my software on my CentOS 6 Server. I have updated from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.2 and now trying to install PHPMyAdmin 4.8 but I am getting an error when running the yum command.

yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-test install phpMyAdmin

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

My answer:


You have multiple issues here:

First, the repo ius is not compatible with remi repositories. Since you are using PHP from remi, you should disable and remove the IUS repo(s) (and find other sources for any other packages you might have from IUS).

Second, it looks like your system somehow got connected to an out of date mirror. I would clear the yum caches with yum clean all and try again.

Third, you should persistently enable repos you are actually using such as remi and remi-php72 etc. These ship disabled, but if you forget to enable them with each command, you will run into dependency issues.

Finally, you enabled remi-test, the contents of which may be unstable or change at any time. It’s likely you’ve got some bad packages from there, in which case disable it and see:

If this still persists, I would run yum distro-sync to ensure that all the installed packages match what is actually available in the repositories.
