phpMyAdmin locked up

I was building some tables with phpMyAdmin and then went off to other pages in the browser and finally closed the browser. Now when I try to restart phpMyAdmin I get the error message below. I may well have done something wrong in the tables, but if I can't get back into phpMyAdmin how can I fix it? It's definitely not a problem with the phpMyAdmin configuration since it's been working fine for weeks and I haven't changed anything there. And it doesn't seem to have anything to do with PHP. It seems to be a problem between phpMyAdmin and MySQL.


Also, where is the PHP Log file they're asking me to check.

My installation is from XAMPP on Windows XP.

Thanks for any suggestions

I think XAMPP provides shortcut to your webserver (apache) log
You can also find it manually by finding folder "logs" of installed Apache on your harddisk.
Errors always logged in error.log

I went to XAMPP Apache Admin from the XAMPP control panel (below) and that opened an XAMPP for Winodws panel and there under Tools was a link to phpMyAdmin.  Clicking that brought up phpMyAdmin without and errors.   After that, I could exit and come back in to phpMyAdmin the normal way wihtout errors.  So, don't know what was wrong but it's fixed now.

I gave you the points.
