I'll just give a quick anwser.

1. cd /usr/ports
2. make search name="phpMyAdmin" or make search key=...
3. cd /usr/ports/www/phpMyAdmin (i'm guessing here)
4. make install && make clean

If you forget to do a make clean, then you'll end up with a large
/usr/ports directory. At a later time you can allways do a 'make clean'
in /usr/ports it self. Drawback is that its takes more time.

or if you have the port portupgrade installed: 

To install: portinstall phpMyAdmin (works 95% of the time)
To upgrade: portupgrade phpMyAdmin

You can find more information about this and other mathers related to
basic FreeBSD use here in the handbook:
