Note that support is only for security fixes. As per the link above,
phpMyAdmin 4.5's minimum PHP version is related to PHP development
team's agenda. We will have to discuss this internally.

I don't have these distros but it looks like Ubuntu 12.04 LTS contains
PHP 5.3.10 and CentOS 6.6 contains PHP 5.3.3.
