Bug: 1.6.5. problem with phpMyAdmin

Postby vidak » 25. December 2007 07:31

I found problem with phpMyAdmin.

with version 1.6.4. everything is OK, but with 1.6.5. there is an error in mysql sintaks. It seems there is no table in phpmyadmin database.

I downgrade my xampp to 1.6.4. and everything is normal.

Sorry to post in English - but this could be an emergency.

I agree with your findings. See also my post in the English section.

As far as I can see it is not necessary to downgrade to XAMPP 1.6.4 again. Replacing the 1.6.5 phpMyAdmin config.inc.php with the "old" 1.6.4 one did the trick for me.

Dear Vidak and Skuipers!

Thanks for pointing at that issue. Please use or upgrade to 1.6.5a to fix this problem.

Thanks again and many greetings

if only the phpmyadmin/config.inc.php is broken you can use phpmyadmin/scripts/setup.php to create a valid config file
or even use your texteditor and save this
Code: Select all
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'anything (but less than 47 characters)';
// only needed for obfuscating user-name/pw if auth_type = cookie

$i = 0;
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';
// gives better hints from mysql than http

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
// for advanced features

// see http://wiki.cihar.com/pma/config.inc.php
// and http://wiki.cihar.com/pma/Quick_Install#Configuration
later you can amend it according your needs, e.g., "controlluser"... (see config.sample.inc.php)
