Bet this happened because you just reinstalled WAMP, right? This happens if you did not back up the data folder under MySQL folder.

I am not sure if there is another alternative other than if your Windows backup is running. If it is, then you are lucky.

Simply go to the data folder and look for the iblog0 and ibdata files. Right click, select restore and choose which restore point you wish to revert back.

That’s it!

If Windows was not able to back up those files, you are out of luck.


When mapping tables with foreign keys in PHPMyAdmin, you need the “Relation View” link to do so. However, in WAMP, it does not show by default.

No fret. To enable “Relation View”:

  1. Go to the file located in /wamp/apps/PHPMYADMINFOLDER/
  2. Add this line $cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘relation’] = ‘pma_relation’;
  3. Restart Apache.

You should now see the “Relation View” link after that.

You might encounter this error when you run PHP scripts. In this case, I was trying to load PHPMyAdmin and it gave me this error message:

You can easily work around this problem by modifying your PHP.ini file. Look for the string max_execution_time. The default value is 30. You can change it to any value you want, say 60.

That should fix it.
