phpMyAdmin runs with PHP 5.1.6 as well as with PHP 5.2.6 and several other versions of PHP.

share|improve this answer it are saying that no need of doing this dababase redirection....only one phpMyAdmin available for all php version? Thanks – user52534 Aug 30 '10 at 10:06
phpMyAdmin is no database. It's merely a web-based frontend for MySQL written in PHP. So yes, you'll only need one installation of phpMyAdmin on your server even if you run more than one PHP version in parallel. – joschi Aug 30 '10 at 12:53

It sounds to me like you're asking if the version of phpadmin you use to manage the database affects the version you use to run your application. It does not. The version of PHP you use for your application and phpmyadmin do not have to match.
