    error #1146 - Table 'phpmyadmin.pma_recent' doesn't exist

    this morning I loaded up phpMyAdmin after not using it for over a week, and was greeted by the message:

    SELECT `tables`
    FROM `phpmyadmin`.`pma_recent`
    WHERE `username` = 'root'

    MySQL said:

    #1146 - Table 'phpmyadmin.pma_recent' doesn't exist
    I can't see a database with the name "phpMyAdmin or anything similar" on either this server with the error
    or with either of my other servers that aren't outputting any errors; also it seems that whatever is causing the error isn't impeding the programs that use MySQL;
    I can't find anything on Google that seems relevant, and I've rebooted the machine and I still get this message as soon as I log into phpMyAdmin...
    Can anyone shed any light on what could be causing this problem, or how to clean it up?

    Thanks

    I've still not figured it out, or found any useful information on Google, has anyone else encountered this before?

    if anyone else has this problem, use phpMyAdmin to import "create_tables.sql" from the examples folder of phpMyAdmin

    helpful - but you omitted the path, which is more useful if you arrived here via Google and don't know where that is, exactly:

    /usr/share/doc/phpmyadmin/examples/

    Just use the import feature and choose "create_tables.sql.gz".

    Thank you so much this helped me solve my issue. It appears my whole Lamp Server configuration failed.
    After I completed the steps above, I also received another error where at the bottom of the page I was getting read error message with
    Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.

    I had to basically uninstall and re-intall phpmyadmin
    PHP Code:
    sudo apt-get remove phpmyadmin
    sudo apt
    -get install phpmyadmin 
    Details can be found here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1152326&page=2

    All seems to working fine now

    Just as an FYI, anyone looking for a quick solution, when viewing the config-db.php file in etc/phpmyadmin, note that the dbname variable is the name of the table that the create_tables.sql file generated. This will allow you to resume use of PMA without any issues.
