I installed 1.7 today by uninstalling my previous version and installing 1.7 (I kept my existing databases and htdoc files)
All is OK apart from an error in phpmyadmin that I have searched the forums and Google for and can't find out how to get rid of.
The error is "#1034 - Incorrect key file for table 'pma_history'; try to repair it ". I have found out that it is something to do with the fact that there is a field named "table" in this table. I tried to repair as suggested in the posts I found but the error message just keeps appearing again.
I presume I have missed some upgrade step and if somebody could help then that would be great.
