Debian 10 to 11 upgrade phpadmin error

I did an upgrade on our staging server with Debian 10 to 11 with hestiacp 1.15.11 installed with no issues.

Then, I did the update on a live server, and no issues except it shows a phpadmin screen asking to install phpmyadmin using apache (the server is an NGINX only machine) or lighttpd. I chose none and hit CANCEL.

The server and hestiacp panel are working, and I can log into my phpmyadmin from the panel button or the URL but I can’t get past this error:

The version of phpmyadmin from the hestiacp button is the current 5.0.4 version.

Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks!

I have no experience with phpmyadmin migration from 10 to 11

I suggest you to run:

Do I also need to update these repos from buster to bullseye (didn’t do this in staging)

Thanks @eris – got both source lists updated.

Since my hestiacp panel and phpmyadmin works, can I simply apt-mark hold phpmyadmin to prevent Debian from updating the package? Will hestiacp continue to update phpmyadmin when new hestiacp updates are pushed?

Yes, and yes

Hmm it doesn’t like anchors…

Yup, I see now that Packages for phpMyAdmin, Roundcube, and Rainloop will be pulled directly from their upstream source instead of APT for new installations. was added in hestiacp 1.4.0 but since I upgraded an existing install, APT wasn’t blocked.

Thanks again for your help @eris. Really appreciate it.
