Your PHP MySQL library version 5.0.91 differs from your MySQL server version 5.1.50. This may cause unpredictable behavior | phpMyAdmin

Right after a fresh installation of phpMyAdmin, you open the main page with your favorite browser (ie explorer no doubt) and view the contents. Our beloved third party displays just fine, but at the bottom there lies the following warning:

Your PHP MySQL library version 5.0.91 differs from your MySQL server version 5.1.50. This may cause unpredictable behavior.

Nobody likes unpredictable behaviors. Check again... Nope, PHP and MySQL newer versions installed. Where does the warning come from? How to deal with this?

The following quote comes to answer the question marks over our heads:

<strong>MySQL Library Differs</strong>

When using some tools (most notably PHPMyAdmin) you may get a<br/> notice like this

<strong>Your PHP MySQL library version 5.0.90 differs from your MySQL<br/> server version 5.1.50.</strong>

This may cause unpredictable behavior.

This message can be safely ignored. The reason that the library cannot <br/>be upgraded with the server is that, in Enterprise Linux, everything<br/> is compiled around the old library.

Upgrading the library would break a number of programs compiled<br/> against it so, for compatibility's sake, it must remain<br/> as the one provided by the vendor directly.

If you REALLY need the latest libraries you can recompile<br/> php from the SRPMS.
