So, I have a PC with Ubuntu 12 LTS, Apache-PHP-MYSQL package and ISPConfig on it. Today I've tried to import an SQL file witn phpMyAdmin, and it gave me the following error:

No data was received to import. Either no file name was submitted, or the file size exceeded the maximum size permitted by your PHP configuration.

and observed that two more errors appeared, the first one

The phpMyAdmin configuration storage is not completely configured

and the second one

The configuration file now needs a secret passphrase (blowfish_secret)

I've googled about 4-5 hours, found some solutions, but none of them worked for me. I've tried to fix the blowfish_secret by inserting an $cfg variable to phpma's configuration file (solution found on phpma's official site) but without success. Somebody had the same or similar issue?
