The phpMyAdmin team announces the release of versions 4.9.4 and 5.0.1.

As a reminder, version 4.x is in the LTS phase, where only security fixes and critical bug fixes are made. Users are suggested to migrate to version 5.

These releases address two issues, a problem with two-factor authentication that was introduced with the last releases, and a fix for an SQL injection vulnerability that was reported by CSW Research Labs https://twitter.com/cswcyberworks. This vulnerability is assigned PMASA-2020-1 and requires that the attacker have logged in through a valid MySQL account.

Known issue: the reported current release version may display incorrectly on the main page (for instance, “Version information: 5.0.1, latest stable version: 4.9.4”). This is expected to be fixed in the next routine bug fix release.

Downloads are available at phpmyadmin.net.

Happy new year,

phpMyAdmin 4.9.3 is released

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Phpmyadmin

Welcome to phpMyAdmin 4.9.3, a routine bugfix release. This release is occurring simultaneously with the release of phpMyAdmin 5.0.0, which is our recommended version except for users with older PHP installations.

This is planned as the final bugfix release of phpMyAdmin version 4. Version 4 works with PHP versions 5.5 through (at least) 7.4,
and MySQL versions 5.5 and newer (and the corresponding MariaDB versions). Version 5 will require PHP 7.1 or newer, but
we plan to maintain security fixes for version 4 as part of our LTS program. For end of life details and supported
versions, please see the “Supported versions” grid at https://www.phpmyadmin.net/downloads/.

This release includes fixes for many bugs, including:

  • Several PHP notices and warnings including “Undefined index table_create_time,”
    a notice about error_reporting() being disabled for security reasons, and several Undefined Index errors.
  • Support CloudFront-Forwarded-Proto header for Amazon CloudFront proxy
  • Early compatibility with development versions of PHP 8
  • Fix replication actions (start, stop, etc)

There are many, many more bug fixes thanks to the efforts of our developers and other contributors.
For full details, you can see the ChangeLog file included with this release.

phpMyAdmin 5.0.0 is released

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Phpmyadmin

Welcome to the release of phpMyAdmin version 5.0.0. This release is occurring simultaneously with version 4.9.3; except for users with old PHP installations, version 5.0.0 is the recommended version.

This release includes many new features and improvements from the 4.9 series. We expect to maintain version 4 in a security capacity
to support users with older PHP installations. For full details about supported versions and end of life dates, see the “Supported versions”
grid at https://www.phpmyadmin.net/downloads/.

With this release, we are removing support of old PHP versions (5.5, 5.6, 7.0, and HHVM). These versions are outdated and are no longer supported by the PHP team.

Version 5.0 includes many coding improvements that modernize the interface. Many of these changes are transparent to users, but make the code easier to maintain.
Much of this refactoring work is completed by our contract developer, MaurĂ­cio Meneghini Fauth. We always consider applications for new (paid) contract developers,
see https://www.phpmyadmin.net/contractor/ for program details.

Some of the changes and new features include:

  • Enable columns names by default for CSV exports
  • Add Metro theme
  • Automatically add the index when creating an auto increment column
  • Improvements to exporting views
  • Prompt the user for confirmation before running an UPDATE query with no WHERE clause
  • Improvements to how errors are show to the user (including allowing easier copying of the error text to the clipboard)
  • Added keystrokes to clear the line (ctrl+l) and clear the entire console window (ctrl+u)
  • Use charset ‘windows-1252’ when export format is MS Excel

There are several more changes, please refer to the ChangeLog file included with the 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 https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=76243. 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 https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/issues/14220. We suggest upgrading your PHP installation to take advantage of the authentication methods.

Downloads are available now at https://phpmyadmin.net/downloads/

Our work would not be possible without the donations of our generous sponsor, and this release in particular is brought to you thanks to the hard work of our Google Summer of Code students and many other contributors.
