requirements — phpmyadmin 5.2.0 documentation-尊龙登录

web server

since phpmyadmin’s interface is based entirely in your browser, you’ll need a web server (such as apache, nginx, iis) to install phpmyadmin’s files into.


  • you need php 7.2.5 or newer, with session support, the standard php library (spl) extension, hash, ctype, and json support.

  • the mbstring extension (see mbstring) is strongly recommended for performance reasons.

  • to support uploading of zip files, you need the php zip extension.

  • you need gd2 support in php to display inline thumbnails of jpegs (“image/jpeg: inline”) with their original aspect ratio.

  • when using the cookie authentication (the default), the extension is strongly suggested.

  • to support upload progress bars, see 2.9 seeing an upload progress bar.

  • to support xml and open document spreadsheet importing, you need the extension.

  • to support recaptcha on the login page, you need the extension.
