Weekly phpMyAdmin contributions 2017-W03

After week of vacation, I got back to work. The week was quite busy with quite a lot of handled issues on the table. The bigger focus was on phpMyAdmin itself, but there were some minor improvements to the SQL Parser as well.

I've again focused on the OS X problems with lower_case_table_names settings in the MySQL server and yet another issue was fixed there. While working with that, I've added OS X tests to be executed on Travis CI. This has caught at least one bug which was present in phpMyAdmin on OS X since ages.

Another change important to some users, is that limited phpinfo is returning to phpMyAdmin. In past we've removed it completely as response to PMASA-2016-59, but it brought us quite some negative feedback, so this page is now back without it's dangerous parts. Still this is something you're not recommended to enable on production environment.

OK I am a novice, but my tech tell me that the old version of PHP would let him see a list of online users and as they dropped off they would disappear from the screen, now the new version shows asleep but does not clear them from the screen so we don't know if they are frozen or not active. What can we do about it to control our databases
