I'm running CENTOS 5.7 I have phpMyAdmin - installed via yum. Trying to update to 3.5.6.

If I run:

yum list installed | grep phpMyAdmin

I get:

phpMyAdmin.noarch                             installed

However, if I run:

yum update phpMyAdmin

I get:

No Packages marked for Update

How should I go about fixing this? Should I completely uninstall phpMyAdmin & reinstall from source? I'm a bit of a noob at this, but it seems like I should just be able to update phpMyAdmin via yum? Is there some dependency thing that I'm missing?

The package is called phpmyadmin3 for version 3.5 (on the epel repo). Read the doc to check about the recommended update procedure.
