phpMyAdmin Not Working Right!

My website URL is:

What I’m seeing is: Upon CPanel creation of mysql database, using ADMIN button to launch phpmyadmin throws me to the phpmyadmin site. No leftside navigation panel but small icon on right side reveals it upon clicking, BUT THE NAVIGATION PANEL SAYS NO DATABASES. But I know it’s there. How? I created it with no error messages. I created a table inside of it. I can see it listed under MySQL Databases in CPanel. The phpmyadmin just seems to be broken.

I read all the knowledge base/community forum suggestions: clearing the cache, waiting two days,ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error because of pw changes (does not apply), incognito mode, etc. I have not asked about database permissions being reset, so I guess I could try that. The directions seem a bit nebulous (please ask on the forum for staff to reset your database permissions) but, based on what I’ve been reading, it doesn’t look like the problem has been soled.

I’m using this software: PC with the latest version of Chrome. Problem is the same no matter which browser I use.

Because iFastNet had done some modifications on phpMyAdmin to make it work on free shared hosting, that navigation panel doesn’t mark the right thing (e.g. you have created a database, but on the navigation panel it doesn’t show that you created a database. That’s normal and you can ignore it, and not click on the small icon on the right side on phpMyAdmin anymore.

It’s “broken” because you can’t see a list of databases? That’s not “broken”, that’s how it’s meant to work.

You can view a list of your databases in the control panel. From there, you can click the phpMyAdmin links to login to phpMyAdmin for that specific database. If you want to see another database, you will have to close the first phpMyAdmin window and login to the other database using the button in the control panel. This way, you can manage all your databases with phpMyAdmin, even though maybe it works a bit differently from what you’re used to.

This is how the database management was designed to work. This will probably not be changed (or “solved”) in the foreseeable future.
