I have installed WAMP 1.6.1 on my new laptop (CoreDuo Dell) and I've installed this package on 7 computers now, with no issues. For some reason on this laptop, the phpMyAdmin installation is throwing the following PHP error to the log:
php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\wamp\www\phpmyadmin\css
n.css.php on line 7
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required './libraries/common.lib.ph
ear') in C:\wamp\www\phpmyadmin\css
n.css.php on line 7
The result is purely asthetic. phpMyAdmin seems unable to process it's dynamic CSS calls in phpmyadmin.css.php and what the browser renders appears to be an un-stylized version of phpMyAdmin.
I have attached a screenshot here: http://www.jookyworld.com/files/phpmyadmin.jpg
All the pretty tabs are gone, and the layout is horrible making it painful to navigate and browse. Functionally it works, but it's just plain ugly and not very user friendly. I have tried everything from reinstallation to renaming the directories to specifying the doc_root in php.ini (thought maybe that WAMP was having an issue with it's aliasing). The only clue I have to the problem is that on the index.php page located in the root web directory of the installation (by default c:\wamp\www\index.php). Usually when this file is run, you would get the contents of the root directory, but for some reason I see the contents of the following directory (c:\wamp\apache2).
Here is the code from that index.php file: http://jookyworld.com/files/index.txt
Where lines 180-200 (copy and paste the code into dreamweaver) spit out what is supposed to be the root web directory but instead results in the apache2 directory. I had read where possibly apache server was compressing the phpmyadmin.css.php file using gzip and that was causing issue, but I don't know enough about Apache server to use anything I found concerning that.
Ahh the price of beauty. Thanks in advance.
