I'm learning PHP and MySQL with a book, and got phpMyAdmin to help me with the MySQL management. I've made some tables so far but whenever I click on the SQL tab, I get this error message. Seems like it'd be a common problem, and googling the #1146 line yields some results that don't exactly help me. I suppose it's some config problem.


SQL query: DocumentationEdit

SELECT label, id
FROM `phpmyadmin`.`pma_bookmark`
WHERE dbase = 'seasons'
user = 'root'
OR user = ''
ORDER BY label

MySQL said: Documentation
#1146 - Table 'phpmyadmin.pma_bookmark' doesn't exist

In my config.inc.php file, I have:
[pre]$cfg['Servers'][$i]['pmadb'] = 'phpmyadmin';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['bookmarktable'] = 'pma_bookmark';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['relation'] = 'pma_relation';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['table_info'] = 'pma_table_info';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['table_coords'] = 'pma_table_coords';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['pdf_pages'] = 'pma_pdf_pages';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['column_info'] = 'pma_column_info';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['history'] = 'pma_history';
What's wrong?

You need to first create a user named pma, define it in config.inc.php (controluser/controlpass) and then run the file: create_tables_mysql_4_1_2+.sql (assuming your version of MySQL is 4.1.2 or higher, of course)

It is in the phpmyadmin scripts folder. That should take care of your problem.

FROM `phpmyadmin`.`pma_bookmark`

you named your database phpmyadmin?

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
