Or
web server upload directory: _______
character set of the file _____


but it's not there on my screen.

I did set up an upload directory in Xamp/phpMyAdmin/ config.inc.php
$cfg['UploadDir'] = 'c:\Files';

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

I'm unsure on this, BUT - I think the UploadDir may have to be somewhere in your ServerRoot (generally that would be the xampp folder).
Let me know what happens.

Good Luck

If your getting a white screen then it could the server itself (adjust php.ini if it does happens).

Try downloading the latest phpMyAdmin and try again because it could be the script itself.

I'm on a CentOS server. My phpMyadmin "vanilla" install uses the folder /var/lib/phpMyAdmin which contains the 'config', 'save' and 'upload' folders. I DIDN'T HAVE TO CHANGE the PHP $cfg['UploadDir'] setting away from the system default (which in my case uses ./tmp).

Anyway, all that was necessary was that I ftp the large (500+MB) .csv file that I want to import into my database into the folder /var/lib/phpMyAdmin/upload. Then navigate to the Import tab in phpMyadmin and the option for "web server upload directory" appears. The drop down menu now shows the file I just placed in /var/lib/phpMyAdmin/upload.

Hope this helps.
