As a DirectAdmin admin, it is a nice idea to not enable all features for PHPMyAdmin for all users. Such users cannot access features such as the Designer tab when working with PHPMyAdmin. When they try to use these features, a notification will appear on the interface saying:
The phpMyAdmin configuration storage is not completely configured, some extended features have been deactivated.
But, there is a way to enable all these features of PHPMyAdmin via DirectAdmin SSH and make them available to these users.
To Enable All Features for PHPMyAdmin
1. Log into your DirectAdmin server via SSH as the root user.
2. Run these commands:
wget -O create_tables.sh http://files1.directadmin.com/services/all/phpMyAdmin/create_tables.sh
chmod 755 create_tables.sh
These commands are to download the create_tables.sh script. It will also create the da_phpmyadmin user and password and configure the config.inc.php file.
