This is the second release candidate for 2.5.5. A few problems were discovered and fixed from 2.5.5-rc1. phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. Currently it can create and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add fields, execute any SQL statement, manage keys on fields.
Welcome to this first release candidate for 2.5.5. As stated in a previous message, now we offer only .php version in the kits, so support for PHP 3 is dropped.
The development team has decided to stop supporting PHP < 4.1.x and MySQL < 3.23.36, starting with phpMyAdmin 2.5.5. This means that
- a warning will be issued on the main phpMyAdmin page if you are running older PHP or MySQL versions
- the .php3 version of the distribution kit will not be available for 2.5.5 and later
- we have added on the Downloads page a link to version 2.2.7pl1, the latest version that was tested against PHP3. Versions after 2.2.7pl1 may or may not work with PHP 3.
Be warned that if you go in Relation view for a InnoDB table, relations via non-unique keys wont be displayed, and if you press Go, they will be deleted.
This is fixed in 2.5.5-dev.
