Solving common errors

To help solve a problem, we should first pinpoint the origin of the error message. Here are the various components that can generate an error message:

  • MySQL server: These messages are relayed by phpMyAdmin, which displays MySQL said followed by the message
  • PHP component of the web server: For example, Parser error
  • Web server: The error can be seen from the browser, or in the web server's log files.
  • Web browser: For example, JavaScript errors

The Error Messages and Other Problems sections are mostly based on various messages found on phpMyAdmin's help forum and in the FAQ section of Documentation.html.
