Tracking Disabled helpp

Postby peta555 » 22. March 2011 21:52

I downloaded the xampp 1.7.4, zip version of 123 MB.

why is disabled by default the option of the linked tables?
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking'] ... not OK (Tracking: Disabled)

I searched through the internet how enable it but I can not fix it. there is a version of XAMPP which comes with all options enabled?

Try 1.7.3 from the SourceForge Repository.

Make sure you uninstall and remove the other version completely before trying to install another version, some pointers here:

I found this solution:

Open the file and find the follow line, if it does not exist, add it to the file. Then everything goes well~~
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking'] = ‘pma_tracking’; .... /etc/phpmyadmin/

@ the following link: ... mentation/

It did not work right away, I had to do a few more changes, but finally got it working

from the phpmyadmin go to import, and import the following file


(hit go so that the file get executed)

add to each of these files the line of code as follows:

FILE: /etc/phpMyAdmin/
LINE OF CODE: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking'] = 'pma_tracking';

FILE: /etc/phpMyAdmin/
LINE OF CODE: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking'] = ‘pma_tracking’;

DELETE the forward slash forward slash // (or commented out )
FILE: /etc/phpMyAdmin/
DELETED // to comment out this line: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking'] = ‘pma_tracking’;

stop your xampp control using xampp_stop.exe
then restart services

when you log back into phpMyAdmin, the warning should be gone
