I have an older version of MAMP installed on my MacBookPro. I have a couple hosting accounts and they both have a current version of phpMyAdmin installed. The later versions allow click-to-edit-in-row data changes on the browse or search results screens. My local install does not, and it was getting annoying.
I tried something and it worked, which in hind sight seems pretty obvious, but figured I’d share it anyway.
Download a new version of phpMyAdmin
decompress it and leave the folder name as is for now (for me it was phpMyAdmin-3.5.6-english)
copy the directory and head over to your MAMP install to the bin directory
On my Mac, this is /Applications/MAMP/bin/
paste the new phpMyAdmin code tree into the bin directory
rename the current phpMyAdmin directory (conveniently named phpMyAdmin on my machine) to something like orig_phpMyAdmin
rename your new version (phpMyAdmin-3.5.6-english) to phpMyAdmin
enter the orig_phpMyAdmin directory and copy config.inc.php into the new directory.
