MySQL error - #1932 - Table 'phpmyadmin.pma user config' doesn't exist in engine

Finally, I find the solution.
We can find there really exists the table 'pma__tracking' when we expand the phpmyadmin database.

But the system error call on #1932 - Table 'phpmyadmin.pma__tracking' doesn't exist in engine.

So just try to remove the old pma__* database first and reconfig them later.

1.Remove the wrong tables in xampp's installation path and remove all the files in var/mysql/phpmyadmin/, which are similar like pma__bookmark.frm/pma__bookmark.ibd...

2.Reinstall the sql of phpmyadmin, which located in phpmyadmin/sql/, something like 'create_tables.sql', run them with mysql < create_table.sql, etc.

Then it works.

I had the same error and it occured when changing the mysql/data folder to another folder.
I just copied all folders inside mysql/data folder to a new location except for two files. Those are ib_logfile0 and ib_logfile1; those are automatically created when starting the MySQL server. That worked for me.

In short just replace the content of config.inc.php from line 50-69 with...

 $cfg['Servers'][$i]['pma__bookmark'] = 'pma__bookmark';
 $cfg['Servers'][$i]['pma__relation'] = 'pma__relation';

This is my experience for this problem maybe it could help you :

I copied all folders and files inside the /data folder to have a backup from my db .

When I switched to another Computer's Xampp and I started copying all folders and files copied before from previous phpmyadmin /data folder.

So when I was done this problem happened for me .

To solve this issue :

1 - I made a backup from /data folder of phpmyadmin by copying only only folders have same name with tables I want to make backup .

2 - Uninstall Xampp.

3 - Reinstall Xampp .

4 - Copy all folders Kept in step 1 inside mysql/data folder . this folders are only database tables and be careful don't touch another file and folder or replace anything when copying.

make change in changes in /opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php

Had the same problem in Ubuntu 14 using XAMPP. Here's what I did which worked..

  1. Stop mysql if its running in xampp
  2. vi /opt/lamp/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php (use sudo if you are not the su)
  3. replace

    $cfg['Servers'][1]['relation'] = 'pma__relation';
    $cfg['Servers'][1]['userconfig'] = 'pma__userconfig';
    $cfg['Servers'][1]['table_info'] = 'pma__table_info';
    ...
    

    to

    $cfg['Servers'][1]['pma__relation'] = 'pma__relation';
    $cfg['Servers'][1]['pma__userconfig'] = 'pma__userconfig';
    $cfg['Servers'][1]['pma__table_info'] = 'pma__table_info';
    ...
    

    basically add pma__ prefix to the left side similar to the right.

  4. Run mysql and access localhost/phpmyadmin and click on a db to check if it works.

Hope this helps.

I've encountered the same problem in OSX. I've tried to replace the things like
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['usergroups'] to $cfg['Servers'][$i]['pma__usergroups'] ...

It works in safari but still fails in chrome.
But the so called 'work' in safari can get the message that the features which have been modified are not in effect at all.
However, the 'work' means that I can access the dbs listed left.
I think this problem maybe a bug in the new version of XAMPP, since the #1932 problems in google is new and boomed.
You can have a try at an older version of XAMPP instead until the bug is solved.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xampp/files/XAMPP%20Linux/5.6.12/
Hope it can help you.

you need to download the previous version, xampp actually present bug in its latest version.

Good Luck!

If all the solutions above don't work, try to :

Add $i = 1; after /* Servers configuration */

in place of $i = 0 in your phpmyadmin config.inc.php file

Running XAMPP on local windows server, my mysql data files are not under the usual install path (C:\Xampp), but on another disk.

So now I have the phpmyadmin tables with the double __ like pma__table... and $i = 1;
