Welcome to the release of phpMyAdmin version 5.0.1. This is fixes an important security flaw as well as containing several other bug fixes.

The two most notable fixes:
* Issue #15724 regarding two-factor authentication
* PMASA-2020-1 which is an SQL injection vulnerability in the user accounts page

There are several other bugs fixes, please see the ChangeLog file included with this release for full details.

Known shortcomings:

Due to changes in the MySQL authentication method, PHP versions prior to 7.4 are unable to authenticate to a MySQL 8.0 or newer server (our tests show the problem actually began with MySQL 8.0.11). This relates to a PHP bug There is a workaround, that is to set your user account to use the current-style password hash method, mysql_native_password. This unfortunate lack of coordination has caused the incompatibility to affect all PHP applications, not just phpMyAdmin. For more details, you can see our bug tracker item at We suggest upgrading your PHP installation to take advantage of the authentication methods.
