Manually updating phpmyadmin on Plesk 9.5

    I am working with a client who was hacked, and one of the issues I discovered that is less than optimal is that he was still using phpmyadmin 2.11.9.6 on his Plesk installation. I brought this to his attention, and he contacted his host about upgrading, and this was their reply:

    The patch they were referring to is the one discussed in http://kb.odin.com/en/8934, but that only brings the phpmyadmin up to 2.11.10.1, which is from last year, and there have been several security issues with that one as well.

    Does anyone know if there is an up to date phpmyadmin package released that will work with Plesk 9.5? Or what would need to be done in order for the official release to work with no issues? Will Plesk 9.5 support the phpmyadmin 3.4 branch? I tried Googling for more information on manual upgrades, but everything I found was outdated. Any assistance would be appreciated, thanks.

    Edit: Also, I just realized that the line his tech support gave him about not upgrading phpmyadmin is from the Plesk Windows documentation, and I cannot find anything at all about upgrading phpmyadmin in the Linux docs that I checked. Any idea if the issues are the same with the Linux version of Plesk?

    There is not one no, Parallels has never seemed to care about the security of the phpMyAdmin - it would seem like they should be able to package it up and include it in their psa-base or even a separate package so they can provide security patches but that doesn't seem to be a priority for them.

    Amin, thank you for your reply. Do you know if there are any tutorials out there for doing an upgrade manually, or what issues might be expected?

    I dont know of any tutorials - but if you mess with the parallels version then the auto login will not work and all users will have to login to phpmyadmin manually. There could also be other implications since the parallels dev team does some work on their code base to integrate it into Plesk.
