I have an old Win 2003 server running an SMF 1.1.19 forum site.  I set this up before WAMP server and the like and did not install phpmyadmin initially.  The compiled bundle i did use at the time is running Apache 2.2.4, PHP 5.2.1 and MySQL 5.0.22.  The version of phpMyAdmin that i've made some progress with is 3.4.3.2.  (It appeared that 4.1.x would not be compatible.  I tried a 4.0.x and didn't get past a mbstring error. )

I am trying to set up phpmyadmin after the fact and am having trouble.  (The Apache, php & mySQL cocktail install i used initially did not have extra tools like phpMyAdmin.)  I am wanting to move this forum to be hosted by a 3rd party host, but cannot get a workable backup of the forum database.

With the 3.4.3.2 version i get so far as being able to log into phpMyAdmin's web portal.  I can see the forums mysql database and access the user profiles.  But all of the exports i've pulled produce incomplete data in the new site.  I get the following errors:
phpMyAdmin Errors
I am assuming that one or more of these errors are causing the problems.  

I have already enabled both of those extensions listed in the php.ini file.  I'm not sure what to do next and i have been trying to be very cautious.  As with many things, i can't afford to damage this forum site.  

Thanks for the help.
