I have a small database (<100 KB when dumped) that will hang in phpMyAdmin when I try to sort by various columns.

Sometimes it hangs when I try to edit columns by directly clicking on their content.

I see the following warnings and wonder if anyone can provide an experienced based explanation or any assistance in improving the interface.

The phpMyAdmin configuration storage is not completely configured, some extended features have been deactivated. To find out why click here.

Your PHP MySQL library version 5.0.77 differs from your MySQL server version 5.5.10. This may cause unpredictable behavior.

@Jacob I will begrudgingly attempt the upgrade since it is the only suggestion so far (I had difficulties previously). I was hoping someone could state with experience that the symptom and the cause were certainly related. Thanks for the kick in the butt. – physicsmichael Sep 29 '12 at 16:38
