MySQL & PhpMyAdmin on WinXP

  1. Hello,

    Ive installed MySQL server 5.0 with PhpMyAdmin 2.11.14 on Windows XP. When I login to phpmyadmin, I get this error at the bottom:

    Your PHP MySQL library version 5.0.51 differs from your MySQL server version 3.23.32. This may cause unpredictable behavior.

    Anyone have a clue????

    First though is "Did you verify the system requirements for each"?

    Which XP {home/pro} are you running and are you current with the updates?

    Thanks for the inquisition, jobeard! Yes. I'm running XP Home... but I've modified home to handle professional standards and have complete updates with Microsoft. PhpMyAdmin 2.11.4 has a bug which should be fixed in version 2.11.5. The fix is simple:

    Open phpmyadmin\
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysql';
    Replace with:
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = 'pma';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = '';
    Replace with:
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = '';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = '';
    I feel like a guru after three long days of research and lots of coffee... If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.
