Im having trouble creating tables in databases with PHPmyadmin. Each time im getting this error message:

tbl_create.php: Missing parameter: db (FAQ 2.8)
tbl_create.php: Missing parameter: table (FAQ 2.8)

Ive tried two of the solutions in the FAQ doc, changing the and php.ini file but this hasnt worked.

Ive also tried uninstalling then reinstalling WAMP but im still getting the error message.

Arghhh! Can anyone help?

this is not a php.ini or config.ini.php problem. what ever you changed in those files, change them back. this is a human error. you are not useing the correct sql syntax for your create statements. make sure you are using the right sql struction for your create statement.

$dblink = mysql_connect ('localhost', 'root', 'password');
$dbase = mysql_selectd_db ('_Your_Database_Name_Here_', $dblink);

$sql = "
CREATE TABLE sometable (
somedata1 TEXT,
somedata2 DATETIME

$result = mysql_query ($sql, $dblink);

Thank you for your help. However, im using PHPmyadmin to create the tables

I have found a solution to the problem..previously, i was using IE6 with PHPmyadmin which was causing the errors. Now using Firefox and everything seems to work fine now.

Not sure what was causing the errors, perhaps security features on IE6??
