Debian package question: Will an apt-get install of phpMyAdmin hose my system?

Hi,

I'm running Debian Woody for my web server.  The original version of PHP (4.1.2) that came with Woody was too old for some content managment software I wanted to run so I uninstalled the old version and installed the latest version of PHP available at the time.

So now I'm wanting to install phpMyAdmin.  When I type in apt-get install phpmyadmin, Debian tells me it wants to install PHP4.  I'm worried that if I proceed, I will run into major problems and damage the newer version of PHP that I have installed.

Can someone please advise?

I'd advise against using apt-get for this. Instead just go to the phpMyAdmin home (http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/) and do a manual install.

You could use unofficial backport of php4 from http://www.apt-get.org/. Either that, or do as jlevie suggests and do a manual install.

Or, if you're feeling adventurous, upgrade to sarge. I've heard that it's nearing freeze, so it should be quite stable by now. At least it's stable enough for my desktop, but I wouldn't try my luck with a production server.
