    Hi all
    I’ve installed this on a server. PHPMyadmin shows following warning:

    German:
    Die Version der verwendeten PHP MySQL Bibliothek 5.0.51a unterscheidet sich von der Version des MySQL Servers 5.1.45. Dies kann zu unerwartetem Verhalten führen.

    English:
    The version of the php mysql libary 5.0.51a is diffrent to the version of mysql server 5.1.47

    how could I upgrade the mysql libary too to the 5.1.47?

    Thanks

    @Stefan : as said in many comments on this blog, they are PHP client-side pieces of information. PHP is built against the old libmysqlclient15off (5.0.51a) to avoid Apache-related issues and segfaults.
    Anyway, 5.0.51a-linked clients interacts with a 5.1.47 server without any issue. Just tweak PHPMyAdmin to avoid the display.

    The issue about 5.1.x and 5.0.x is really annoying… so tweak it quick’n’dirty:

    @Stefan / @all: To keep updates on phpmyadmin easy without mangling the code every time, just add this line to your config.inc.php:

    define(‘PMA_MYSQL_CLIENT_API’, 501);
