View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing phpMyAdmin without internet

March 2nd, 2010, 06:15 PM
I haven't used LINUX in many years and am new to Ubuntu. I brought up a 9.10 server and want to run phpMyAdmin. The machine is not connected to the internet and will only be used on a LAN network. I want to run phpMyAdmin, but I am not sure how to go about getting it installed without net access. Will any Debian package work, or do I need an Ubuntu specific package. Where would I get it? Burn it to CD-R and install from the CD drive?

Try going to the php website and downloading the package for linux. Copy to usb and copy over to server to install. I also suggest installing ssh for use with lan network for remote access to server.

May be you could simply download the phpMyAdmin from the following website, and copy it on USB or CD, and then try installing it on your Ubuntu.


This could be a good way of not using internet on Ubuntu, and installing it from the debian (.deb) file from some other computer.

Thanks. I'll try a USB thumb tonight. If that doesn't work, I'll burn a CD.

Downloaded. Aptitude is new to me, so I'm not sure; sudo apt -get install phpmyadmin means "get from internet and install"? Assuming I have the package in the CD drive, would it be sudo apt install phpmyadmin? Does apt work with a .deb, or do I need to sudo apt-get install gdebi?

I don't know enough about what I'm trying to do, yet. Read "Installing Software" on this site. Page 9 talks about using synaptic, but it seems to require a second LINUX machine that IS on-line...there's mention of a manual way...go to URLs in generated script...but how will synaptic know about phpmyadmin if ist's not on the machine? Does it have some sort of generic list? I will explore, tonight.

Sorry for all the complete newbie questions. Things like this seem insurmountable at first, but I gotta start somewhere and try my best to understand...
