In the folder .\xampp\phpMyAdmin
there should be a file called config_inc.php
If this file is missing or is a shortened version (compare the file size of the file config_default.php to be copied over below) then you can try the following as this approach is both simple and effective, as I mention below.
It also assures continuity as the default file has been used, in your case exclusively perhaps, up to this point.
Go to .\xampp\phpMyAdmin\libraries
and find the file config_default.php
Now copy this file to the phpMyAdmin root folder .\xampp\phpMyAdmin
and then rename it to config_inc.php
Now do your phpMyAdmin configuration edits in the newly copied and renamed file - save the file and restart Apache after editing.
phpMyAdmin looks for config_default.php
in the phpMyAdmin/libraries
folder first then overrides this file with any differences it finds in the config_inc.php
file in the phpMyAdmin root folder - if no config-inc.php
file is found then phpMyAdmin simply uses the config_default.php
It is advised not to make any edits in the config_default.php
file hence the reason to copy over and rename it as I set out above which also simplifies the configuration process by not having to keep checking 2 different configuration files when editing.
I hope this helps to clear up the configuration file issue for you - you should now be able to find the column details for your original request.
