PHPMyAdmin 2.5.1 installation


I ma trying to install PHPMyAdmin on my computer (Red Hat 9.0). When I open the following link on my computer :

I get this.

Fatal error: Failed opening required './libraries/grab_globals.lib.php' (include_path='.:/php/includes') in /var/www/html/phpMyAdmin-2.5.1/index.php on line 9

I guess PHP can not reach a library. Can you tell me which config file I have to update (and which variable) in order to solve this.

Thanks a lot for your help,

Does the libraries directory exist and is that file in it?

try installing 2.5.2 and see if you get that same error

btw, it's ok to have two phpMyAdmin versions running at the same time, while kinda stupid, it still works

martinman, david_ross,

Thanks a lot to both of you.
I have installed version 2.5.2 and it works perfectly. Of course, I am a bit frustrated as I still do not understand why previous version did not work (the library directory existed and so-called missing file was well in there btw)

But ok, now I can go further.

Thanks a lot again,
