Ciao Loic & everybody,

First of all, please have a look at the
http://www.phpwizard.net/projects/phpMyAdmin/ pages, and
the links in the menu.   Ftp access will come in a few
days, but that's already much better, don't you think ? :)

seems that (nearly) everybody is for a 2.2.0, so ok.

well, that's perhaps too big for a few days... Maybe we can plan it for
2.3, or 2.2.xx ?

1) php4 sessions
+ will work if cookies are turned off
+ standard
+ don't need a special mysql setup
- no more php3 support...

2) own (sql-based-) session db
+ would work with php3
+ will work if cookies are turned off (if we add the session ID in all urls)
- more complex setup, but could be automated with the bookmarks stuff.

3) cookies
+ light
- won't work if cookies are tuned off

Well, IMHO we can throw away the 3. And also the 1. if we want to 
keep the whole compatible with php3. But how long will we have to 
stay stuck to php3 ?  

So I guess the 2. ist the "less worse" solution. What do yo think ?
