I have installed phpMyAdmin and it works fine. At the bottom of the pages however, there is this error message:
The phpMyAdmin configuration storage is not completely configured, some extended features have been deactivated. To find out why click here.
In that page, the only red row is this:
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['userconfig'] ... not OK [ Documentation ] User preferences: Disabled
In the configuration I have this:
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['userconfig'] = 'pma_userconfig';
The pma_userconfig was missing from my phpmyadmin db so I found the create_tables.sql from my phpMyAdmin installation and I ran that, then restarted apache and mysql. The table has been created, but the error is not gone.
