Reading BLOB content in phpmyadmin

One of the fields in a database that I am working with in phpMyadmin has content in BLOB format. I want to read what this content is and browse it. But phpMyadmin doesn't display the content. So what should I do? I changed the settings in config.ini.php to
$cfgShowblob              = TRUE;
but doesnt that seem to have changed anything? (do i need to do something to make the changes in config.ini.php take effect?)
i know i can also dump the db thru ssh but i am having trouble doing that so I would like a solution that doesnt involve doing that.
