Import button in phpmyadmin doesn't work

Hi,
I have Linux Debian Squeez, mysql 5.1.61 and phpmyadmin 3.3.7deb7.
When I go to import tab and browse file.sql and press go i does nothing.
It doesn't return no error.

If I copy content of that file file.sql and paste it in to SQL query in same phpmyadmin it will import that table/database.
If I copy that file directly on server and import from command line it also works.

I tried to reinstall phpmyadmin but the problem stays the same.

I have 3 more servers with same configuration and the import button works. (same debian, same versions of mysql, phpmyadmin).

Hi,
Please try the followings.

1.download the latest version of PMA(3.4.10.2) and have a try with import option
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/phpmyadmin/phpMyAdmin/3.4.10.2/phpMyAdmin-3.4.10.2-english.tar.gz?r=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.phpmyadmin.net%2Fhome_page%2Fdownloads.php&ts=1333250325&use_mirror=cdnetworks-kr-1

2.Find the default php.ini path on your server and compare the same with another working servers.
To find php.ini conf file.
php -i |grep php.ini

Open in new window


Check the following values.
file_uploads 
post_max_size
upload_max_filesize

Open in new window


If you found something different then change the values and restart the apache.
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Open in new window


Good luck :)

Check if Options FollowSymLinks is defined for
/home/httpd/htdocs

should be something like this in /etc/apache2/conf/apache2.conf (or your apache config file)

<Directory /home/httpd/htdocs>
Options FollowSymLinks
</Directory>

Also make sure Options None doesn't follow after this statement.

In my /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini I have
file_uploads = On
post_max_size = 64M
upload_max_filesize = 256M

File I was try to upload is 35KB

I tried to put in /etc/apache2/sites-available/xxx
<Directory /home/httpd/htdocs/mybaza>
Options FollowSymLinks
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from xxx.xxx.x.0/24
</Directory>

And after /etc/init.d/apache2 restart, but it didn't help.
Still the same error

I find the solution for me.
The problem was that I copied the phpmyadmin from /usr/share/phpmyadmin to a new locaton. From that new locaton import button didn't work.
When I put it back to /usr/share/phpmyadmin it works. Still don't know why but it is working now so I won't bother any more.
