How can I install PHPmyadmin using homebrew, if that possible. I'm using Mac 10.7.

I installed Homebrew, and it's working perfectly. I use it to download php 5.4 and mysql. Both are working perfectly, and also the homebrew, and it's updated.

How about using XAMPP or MAMP ? Much easier to maintain & use (though the versions may not be up-to-date) – Raptor Apr 4 '13 at 16:48

This is the command if you have homebrew installed:

brew install phpmyadmin

Thanks a lot for your help – HTML Man May 19 '13 at 9:20

You may need to set up some dependencies first. Here's what I had to do:

brew tap homebrew/dupes
brew tap homebrew/homebrew-php
brew install phpmyadmin

This information was from the homepage for Homebrew-PHP, "a centralized repository for PHP-related brews".

there is no github repo josegonzales/homebrew-php anymore so please use "brew tap homebrew/homebrew-php", it worked for me – nerdess Sep 3 '14 at 13:07

as of this writing, brew install homebrew/php/phpmyadmin works
