Regarding the phpMyAdmin, first a clarification on Max's comments...> 

Here it details how to do it (from the Install Notes-->

  + If you don't use the extension ".php3" for your scripts, you can use
    the bundled script "extchg.sh" to modify phpMyAdmin (or any other script)
    to work with a different extension. Beware though, that currently changing 
    the extension from .html to something other won't work (it'd change all 
    "string".htmlspecialchars() constructs).

I think I've almost got this figured out...
