Some Syntax Error

Postby inwell » 01. December 2013 09:00

This is my very first experience using php. Please guide me through...
I installed xampp for windows 1.8.2-2 and completed installation successfully.started the services from control panel.
localhost gives me details of xampp..
but when i click or navigate to http://localhost/phpmyadmin it opens the phpadmin windows but stops giving me error
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '/' in C:\XAMPP\phpMyAdmin\libraries\mysql_charsets.lib.php on line 154

what does that mean?and what is the resolve?

best wishes

Hi inwell,

I never had this issue myself and couldn't find any references on this in the official phpmyadmin bug tracker or the internet. So your issue is not an obvious one.
The error message relates to an untouched phpmyadmin base file, so it can be a not reported phpmyadmin bug, an environment influenced issue (uncommon MySQL collation, OS language) or an installation influenced issue (corrupt files, etc).

First thing to do would be a complete uninstall of XAMPP and a fresh reinstall.
If the issue persists some more information about your OS language, database settings and phpmyadmin settings can give some insight.

best wishes,
