Problem statement

phpMyAdmin Error

Error message


PHPMyAdmin -  Error

You should upgrade to MySQL 5.5.0 or later.


Solution


The customer was running phpMyAdmin version 4.0.10.12 which is compatible with PHP 5.2 and MySQL 5 only. To run the current version of phpMyAdmin 4.5.3.1, the server must have PHP 5.5 to 7.0 and MySQL 5.5. We performed following steps to fix this issue.

  1. Navigate to installation path of phpMyAdmin upto file common.inc.php.

    For Windows server - C:\inetpub\wwwroot\phpMyAdmin\libraries\common.inc.php
    For Linux server - /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/libraries/common.inc.php
  2. Edit common.inc.php file with an editor and comment out following code block.

    if (PMA_MYSQL_INT_VERSION < $cfg['MysqlMinVersion']['internal']) {
    PMA_fatalError(
    __('You should upgrade to %s %s or later.'),
    array('MySQL', $cfg['MysqlMinVersion']['human'])
    );
    }
  3. Save the file and access phpMyAdmin website.
