phpmyadmin issues

I created a database via cpanel but cant see it in my phpmyadmin server. Why is that?

Also, I noticed the following message:
The phpMyAdmin configuration storage is not completely configured, some extended features have been deactivated. To find out why click here.

when i click it gives me following message:

Quick steps to setup advanced features:

  • Create the needed tables with the examples/create_tables.sql
  • Create a pma user and give access to these tables. 
  • Enable advanced features in configuration file (, for example by starting from
  • Re-login to phpMyAdmin to load the updated configuration file.

Is this the problem that is preventing me from not seeing any databases? if yes, how do i solve it?

The configuration storage is "intentional", it's more or less a consequence of how the database is set up.

What I am curious to know is what issue you're actually trying to solve. Did you just notice the message in phpMyAdmin and wanted to report it? Or do you actually experience problems accessing phpMyAdmin?

I’m trying to make live my ecommerce website. But after uploading my project, I got following message: 

I have no problem accessing the phpmyadmin section. But the problem is I can’t see my databases listed at the left panel. 

That’s completely normal. The database list is only visible in the control panel, not in phpMyAdmin itself.
