If you have db names like
phpmyadmin would create a group
test. The group appears in the left side-bar with related databases displayed under it.
How can I disable this feature?
I know this is something old -- so I'm posting here just in case someone stumbles in the same question.
In the latest versions of phpMyAdmin the setting to flip is NavigationTreeEnableGrouping, i.e. in config.inc.php set:
p.s. on localhost, config.inc.php is placed in /phpmyadminX.XX/ folder
Or, for a "current session only", you can do it from phpmyadmin STARTPAGE: click settings -> navigation panel -> uncheck "group items in tree"
You can disable grouping by setting LeftFrameDBTree to false.
