Change the interface language of phpMyAdmin permanently

To permanently change the interface language of phpMyAdmin to any language you like, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the file “/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/phpMyAdmin/” in a text editor.

  2. Search for the following line:

    // $cfg['long'] = 'en-iso-8859-1';
  3. Remove the comment characters (//) at the beginning of the line and change the assignment value to nl (for example, for Dutch). The line now looks like this:

    $cfg['lang'] = 'nl';
  4. Save and close the file.

  5. Call phpMyAdmin. The interface language is now Dutch.
