I admit...I'm not the most up to speed on the VPS stuff, but I've taken a stab at this twice over the last few months and can't get a current phpMyAdmin version up and running. DreamHost Support refused to help so maybe you will offer gracious assistance.
I tried the backup the dh/web/phpmyadmin, copy config file to new downloaded phpMyAdmin directory, delete old remote directory, and replace with new. Easy...not so fast. I get "rm /usr/local/dh/web/phpmyadmin/view_create.php: permission denied". I use FileZilla as my SFTP client and using my VPS Admin User account.
So, then I tried the Putty route. I'm stuck inside my home directory and can't go up to the dh directory to delete them another way.
Can someone, anyone, please help me get this upgrade done. TrustWave's automatic PCI scanner is flagging six errors and five of them can be solved by updating the phpMyAdmin panel.
Thanks in advance for your kind assistance.
