Rrather difficult to live without for those of us who work with DBs regularly.

I'm not thrilled with the 4.x series though (AJAX bloat). I much prefer my 3.4.x version with the AJAX turned off.

I've found 4.x struggles when used on slower connections. The AJAX fails a lot with no easy recovery, as opposed to regular postbacks, which can be retried by refreshing when they time out or otherwise fail.

4.x also doesn't work correctly on iPad (yes, I use this from my iPad on occasion). The browser lags and AJAX failures make it nearly unusable.

Giving it a 4 because it's a necessary tool and the older versions are awesome. The -1 is for the AJAX issues.

The standard web based MySQL management tool. I prefer it over MySQL Workbench and any other database administration software I've seen.

Great tool for sure!
Carefull, if you use no password to connect to mysql, this version needs an extra new line in your config.inc.php :
for allow connecting to mysql with no password, add this line in your config.php:
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = true;

@Orbitration:

PHP4 is no longer supported by PHPMyAdmin because it is no longer supported by the makers of the language themselves.

There are no more security updates supplied for it and it has been phased out.

You need to update your applications/websites for PHP5 or face up to the fact that PHPMyAdmin has every right not to support PHP4 anymore.

I don't understand why you're whining anyway, as PHPMyAdmin 2.x is still in development for security updates only.

3.x is not for you, so stop your whining.

For me, this works brilliantly. 5 stars.

Not to be argumentative, but.......
You're obviously not using php v4 Windows, and I am.
There is no fix for this yet, nor will there be it seems.

Why am I still using v4 ? because every one of my realtime Linux website servers is still using it along with mysql 3 or 4.
EVERY one.

They don't seem to be using any PHPMyAdmin later than 2.10+, either.

Why am I downgrading PHPMyAdmin?

Either the message needs to be removed, or whatever, but my PHP/MySQL combo works perfectly, and the only thing reporting an 'error' is... this program, versions 2.11+

Orbitration: Why rate it below what it deserves when YOU are to blame for it not working?

The error has nothing to do with phpmyadmin, the error would be the same if you used whatever program using mysql the same way. The error is because your php is using old mysql library (version 3) and you are using v. 4 of mysql. The error is the same even if you used mysql 5.

exactly on linux)."

recompile php....?

one word: windows

This is a known issue with Win versions, but no fix yet.

I've spent literally hours looking and trying different suggestions, but....

The main issue is, most of the servers I use for webhosting are still using the 4.1 series of MySQL, so it does no good to run v.5 on my Win localhost (for development)

Version 2.10 works without the error message, that's all I know for sure, and I have no issues with any 'weird behavior' of mysql.

Nahkanunna

Nahkanunna reviewed v2.11.0 on Aug 22, 2007

Orbitration: The problem is just what it tells you. recompile PHP again and point it to your mysql4 install. That way it doesn't use the internal mysql libraries which for php4 are ver 3.x of mysql.

But this continues to be one of the jewels of open source programs. Hard to say what could be hugely improved anymore. It's almost perfect as it is.

Orbitration

Orbitration reviewed v2.11.0-rc2 on Aug 20, 2007

I continually get this error on all the '11' series:

"Your PHP MySQL library version 3.23.49 differs from your MySQL server version 4.1.22. This may cause unpredictable behavior."

And danged if I can find any solution for it online.

So I go back to 2.10 version and everything works fine.

The MAZZTer reviewed v2.10.2-rc1 on Jun 11, 2007

yizuman: This version format is becoming very common, because it means that 3.0 doesn't have to come after 2.9 if the developers know that they haven't put enough work into it to warrant 3.0. Major 1.0 releases are usually the retooling or recoding of the whole program, or a major overhaul of the core code or most of the program in some way or another. Minor 0.1 releases are usually new features or batches of bug fixes. 0.0.1 releases (formerly 0.01) are usually only a minor change or bug fix or two. You might think that 10 bug fixes is enough for a 0.1 and 10 new features is enough for a 1.0, and it probably is, but each individual developer might have a slightly different scale for versioning, or they simply might not feel "ready" to introduce 3.0... because we'd expect the retooling or recoding or whatever.

I should probably put an actual review here now. phpMyAdmin is THE tool I use for MySQL administration... not only is it a great interface if you don't know every single MySQL administrative query (I guess that includes most of us) or just don't like the mysql.exe CLI, but it's a GOOD interface too! Easy to use and all that junk. Only problems I've had with it is it couldn't handle a 22mb pasted SQL query. Oh well, I suppose you can only ask so much from a web interface!

Great app. Just apdated and ran into a few problems on Opera browser, just required some code tweaking.

Must have if you host your own php forum.

phpMyAdmin is the type of software that could easily have developed as a commercial product and sold for several hundred dollars. It's an essential application for a Lamp (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP/Python/Perl) developer.

I love the application and my only qualm is that I would like it to have an automatic configuration process that builds the config file. There are a lot of options and I'm sure that detecting available modules on a server could benefit the application.

OrbitOne

OrbitOne reviewed v2.6.1-rc1 on Dec 14, 2004

As for the program... small differences between this version, another new line seems to be in the config.inc.php file:
"$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowRoot'] = TRUE; // whether to allow root login"

Seeing as how all of the webhosts I have use phpMyAdmin, and I use it on my localhost test box... it works fine as an interface to MySQL
Have yet to see something that is as universally used and as functional.
