Why is PhpMyAdmin 2.10.0.4 style is being changed by php.ini

I've re-installed windows 2003 server, apache, php, and mysql. PhpMyAdmin 2.4.0 works fine. PhpMyAdmin 2.10.0.2 appears to work fine but the content in the right frame has lost it's styling. The path to php.ini is c:\windows\php.ini, if I change the name of this file so that it can't be accessed, stop and start Apache, then PhpMyAdmin 2.10.0.2 looks fine but then the session.save_path is not set.

Any ideas please? PhpMyAdmin 2.10.0.2 and sessions worked before the re-install.

This is unlikely to be a phpmyadmin problem but an underlying fault with your php.ini if it should be working (i.e. your version of php is compatible with version of phpmyadmin)

What version are you using?
Is windows 32bit or 64bit?
Is PHP 32bit or 64bit?

Why don't you just use PHPmyadmin 2.4? If its newer and works just use that!

For the styling it may be a problem with cookies, make sure you accept all cookies from phpmyadmin or donwload phpmyadmin 2.10.3

orbic1: Windows and Php is 32bit. I wonder if it might be something in the way I've setup the Windows 2003 DNS. PhpMyAdmin v2.10.0.4 is newer than v2.4. Php version is v4.3.9. It all worked together before so it's a config issue.

I've solved it! My silly mistake with the session.save_path, I had C:\temp instead of C:\WINDOWS\Temp, C:\temp didn't exist and without Php.ini the system was using C:\WINDOWS\Temp correctly. Thanks for your comments.

The Q was the styling, did you solve that?

You are the only one using that version of phpmyadmin since it dosen't exists, latest release version 2.10.3, next version 2.11.

Sorry, it is v2.10.0.2 of PhpMyAmin.
The incorrect session path setting was causing the loss of styling, it was causing other problems too but the first evidence was the loss of standard colours and layout.
