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"
(can't comment yet #*@%!)
It seems relevant to precise that dependind on your linux distro, config file locations may vary.
On my Debian (squeeze), /usr/share/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php contains a warning on the first lines, which I might well have missed :
I have no idea whether this file may be replaced by some update or other mechanism, but it is usually a good practice to do things the way they are supposed to be.
Btw, his link is kinda dead, which is the reason why answer are better copied here.
