Unable to create new database in phpmyadmin

I installed mampstack-1.1-4 then went to create a new database in phpmyadmin. It wouldn’t let me create a database and gave me this error:

db_create.php: Missing parameter: new_db

Is there a way to get phpmyadmin to create databases?

I’m on Mac OS 10.4.11.

I usually create databases from the command line. Try the following from a terminal:

$ cd
$ ./use_mampstack
$ mysql -u root -p
mysql> create database xxx;
