Installation (with Plugin Support)

Check the current version of Adminer at GitHub and go the the folder where you want Adminer to be installed.

[isabell@stardust ~]$ VERSION=4.7.8
[isabell@stardust ~]$ cd ~/html
[isabell@stardust html]$ wget -O adminer.php https://github.com/vrana/adminer/releases/download/v$VERSION/adminer-$VERSION.php
[isabell@stardust html]$ mkdir -p plugins
[isabell@stardust html]$ wget -O plugins/plugin.php https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vrana/adminer/master/plugins/plugin.php
[isabell@stardust html]$

Create an index.php file in the same directory:

<?php

function adminer_object() {
  foreach (glob("plugins/*.php") as $filename) {
    include_once "./$filename";
  }

  $plugins = array(
    // ...
  );

  return new AdminerPlugin($plugins);
}

include "./adminer.php";

This will include all plugins located in the plugins folder. To use a plugin you also need to initialize it inside the $plugins array.

You can find a list of available Plugins here.

Example Plugin: Themes

[isabell@stardust html]$ THEME_VERSION=1.7
[isabell@stardust html]$ wget -O theme.zip https://github.com/pematon/adminer-theme/archive/v$THEME_VERSION.zip
[isabell@stardust html]$ unzip -o theme.zip
[isabell@stardust html]$ cp -r adminer-theme-$THEME_VERSION/lib/* .
[isabell@stardust html]$ rm -rf theme.zip adminer-theme-$THEME_VERSION
[isabell@stardust html]$

Update the index.php to include the new Plugin:

<?php

function adminer_object() {
  foreach (glob("plugins/*.php") as $filename) {
    include_once "./$filename";
  }

  $plugins = array(
    new AdminerTheme("default-orange")
  );

  return new AdminerPlugin($plugins);
}

include "./adminer.php";
