I'm currently trying to learn MySQL and have a problem that I was unable to solve.

I started to use the query window to give certain commands like:


The problem is that whenever I do a command in the Query Window, I get the following:

enter image description here

Any hints on how to debug this? Tried numerous wamp servers on windows and all of them give me the same pop-up when trying to use PHPMyAdmin Query Window.

If It helps: I'm currently using : BitNami Wamp Stack 5.4.24-0 and latest version of Google Chrome.

Thanks in advance!

Try other client,like Heidisql. – Mihai Jan 23 '14 at 10:14
A quick google seems to suggest it's a compatibility problem between phpmyadmin and some versions of browsers. Try a different browser. – Phil Jan 23 '14 at 10:29
@Phil I keep getting that error in IE but seems like queries get executed using IE so thank you so much. Now I can finally continue my learning. – user64437 Jan 23 '14 at 12:47
  • Close this Query window.
  • Click home button in the top left corner below the phpMyAdmin logo.

    enter image description here

  • Click on the database ijdb, to RUN QUERIES on DATABASE ijdb

  • CLick the tab SQL which is second from left in the menu.

  • Enter the query and run it. It should work now.
