for quite some time I was thinking about way we provide documentation
and I think there is lot of place for improvements.
As my current favorite tool to build documentation is Sphinx
<http://sphinx.pocoo.org/>, I gave it a try. To name some of the
benefits let me quote from their home page:
* Output formats: HTML (including Windows HTML Help), LaTeX (for
printable PDF versions), manual pages, plain text
* Extensive cross-references: semantic markup and automatic links for
functions, classes, citations, glossary terms and similar pieces of
* Hierarchical structure: easy definition of a document
tree, with automatic links to siblings, parents and children
* Automatic indices: general index as well as a module index
* Built-in fulltext search
I've done quick and dirty [*] conversion of FAQ and few introductory
sections, you can find source here:
And the generated documentation in HTML and PDF here:
What do you think about changing our documentation from HTML to
something else (be it Sphinx, Docbook or something completely else)?
[*] I've lost all text formatting and links in text, but that should
not be hard to convert properly, I just did not want to spend much time

the PMASA-2012-5 security advisory has been published on
In short, a SourceForge.net mirror server was compromised, leading to
the distribution of a doctored phpMyAdmin kit containing a backdoor.
phpMyAdmin-22.214.171.124-all-languages.zip fetched from this mirror server is
known to be affected. To our knowledge only one mirror is affected,
which appears to be taken offline already. All other SourceForge.net
mirrors are unaffected.
phpMyAdmin security team
Welcome to the first release candidate for phpMyAdmin 3.5.3, a bugfix
release. phpMyAdmin no longer contains the Highcharts library (which
caused a licensing problem).
Details will appear on http://phpmyadmin.net. In a hurry? you can visit
http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmyadmin to download.

While there is a configuration directive ($cfg['Servers'][$i]['ssl']) to
use an SSL connection for connecting to the MySQL server, it doesn't
seem to work. PHP requires a number of extra variables when initiating
an SSL connection (certificate path, key file, etc). I think I've fixed
up the existing code, but I don't have an ssl-enabled mysql install.
Yeah, I'll probably eventually compile my own, but right now I don't
have time for that.
Is anyone in a position to test my branch?
https://github.com/ibennetch/phpmyadmin.git in the ssl branch or
https://github.com/ibennetch/phpmyadmin/zipball/ssl -- you'll want to
refer to Documentation.html for the appropriate configuration options.

things are going well, but I just noticed that one part has not been
In js/server_status_monitor.js, a call is made to
PMA_createProfilingChart(), which calls PMA_createChart(), which uses
There is a similar function, PMA_createProfilingChartJqplot(), which
does it the jqplot way and is used in js/sql.js.
Any volunteer to work on this?
