PhpMyAdmin configuration storage

Asked by Dennis Enderink on 2012-11-23


I've installed MariaDB 5.5.28 and PhpMyAdmin on Ubuntu 12.04.1LTS. Now I'm trying to enable PMA configuration storage database but I can't seem to get it working.

I've uncommented the right lines in and added a controluser with the right permissions.

On almost every page in PMA I now get a warning telling me that PhpMyAdmin configuration storage is disabled. When I go the to the following link it says:

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['pmadb'] … not OK [ Documentation ]
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['relation'] … not OK [ Documentation ]
General relation features: Disabled
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['table_info'] … not OK [ Documentation ]
Display Features: Disabled
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['table_coords'] … not OK [ Documentation ]
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['pdf_pages'] … not OK [ Documentation ]
Creation of PDFs: Disabled
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['column_info'] … not OK [ Documentation ]
Displaying Column Comments: Disabled
Browser transformation: Disabled
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['bookmarktable'] … not OK [ Documentation ]
Bookmarked SQL query: Disabled
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['history'] … not OK [ Documentation ]

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['designer_coords'] … not OK [ Documentation ]
Designer: Disabled
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking'] … not OK [ Documentation ]
Tracking: Disabled
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['userconfig'] … not OK [ Documentation ]

I tried all solutions found on the internet but nothing really works which is giving me the feeling that it has something to do with MariaDB. As there isn't a lot of information about MariaDB and PMA configuration storage I'm trying it here.

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

This doesn't ring any bells, sorry.

If you think it's a MariaDB problem, please limit it to MariaDB. Like, enable general log, record all queries that PMA is issuing, repeat them manually with a command line client, and see what's going wrong.

Alternatively, report this bug on PMA bug tracker.

Can you help with this problem?
