I have been pulling my hair out over this one and have decided it is time to ask an expert.
I am trying to set up a 2nd machine identical to my laptop running PHP, MySQL, and phpMyAdmin. Everything is working fine with the exception of when I try to browse a table in phpMyAdmin, the page display only so far and then stops. I get all of the left pane, the top row that has server -> local host, database -> mysql, table -> user and then the next row (the row of tabs) starts with browse showing fine, but the next one (structure) starts displaying as text. Sometimes it gets a little farther than other times, but never much. For example, sometimes it will show
[browse] <a class="
and end there. Other times it will show
[browse] <a class="tab" href="tbl_properties_structure.php?lang=en-iso-8859-1&server=1&collation_connection=utf8_unicode_ci&db=mysql&table=user&goto=tbl_properties.php&back=tbl_propertie
The [browse] above represents the browse tab with icon that displays correctly.
Everytime, though, it ends abruptly. If I view source on the page it ends just as suddenly there as well.
I know the data is there, as I can go into export tab, export the data from any table, and it shows up just fine. All other phpMyAdmin pages work just fine as well. Only the browse page is not displaying.
I have done everything I can think of to get it as close to the laptop version as possible, but still cannot get it to work.
I started with the most current version of phpMyAdmin (2.8.1) which gave the same error so decided to downgrade to the version which is working on my laptop, but had the same problem.
Thanks for your time.
