This one bugged me all afternoon - I'd click on, for example, search results, and it just did nothing. Or I'd change the amount per page to over 100 ...and nothing. Finally, I looked at that bit of phpadmin no-one looks at, the very bottom of the front page! And it said You can read all that if you want, but to cut to the good stuff... edit /etc/php5/fpm/conf.d/suhosin.ini add Code: suhosin.request.max_vars=2048 suhosin.post.max_vars=2048 suhosin.request.max_array_index_length=256 suhosin.post.max_array_index_length=256 suhosin.request.max_totalname_length=8192 suhosin.post.max_totalname_length=8192 suhosin.get.max_value_length=1024 save, service nginx restart service php5-fpm restart and there you go! phpmyadmin all working properly again! Hope this manages to save you the couple of hours I spent looking, and teaches ME to look more closely at the foot of pages... EDIT: Sorry, mods - I thought I was posting in the hints and tips section. Would you mind moving this post if you feel it belongs there?
