I am also having this problem. I was following the tutorial: INSTALLING, CONFIGURING, AND DEVELOPING WITH XAMPP
by Dalibor D. Dvorski, March 2007. I copied the phpMyAdmin folder to the htdoc folder and other than that, nothing unusual. when creating the colleauge table and try and enter a numeric value for the field count, I get:
The field count is empty!
I am using phpMyAdmin version 2.10.1
