I recently installed xampp on a linux server and edited my httpd-xampp.conf file to allow me access to the phpmyadmin page then rebooted the server and started xampp. I was able to create a database in phpmyadmin. Yet when I go to the database tab to click on the database I just get a yellow box that says "Loading..." that never disappears.
When I right click the database name from the left menu and say 'open link in new tab, I get this error page
WHERE db_name = 'contacts'
AND table_name = ''
AND column_name = '(db_comment)'
MySQL said: Documentation
#1932 - Table 'phpmyadmin.pma__column_info' doesn't exist in engine
When I click the check mark next to the database and then go to the sql tab to write a create table query, it gives me the error "No database selected".
What steps do I need to take so that I can add a table and entries to that table in the database I just created?
