Can't enter SQL commands phpMyAdmin
I'm using Debian(jessie). I created a database(Cars) using phpMyAdmin's Create database function. I'm following along a book "The Joy of php". After the table is created the author wants to create a table (INVENTORY) using SQL commands. Well, phpMyAdmin will not let me enter any text in the SQL query text area. I created the table using the Create table function(buttons). If I click on the INVENTORY table in the left window-pane or the tab above I get the following error message:
Error SELECT 'prefs' FROM 'phpmyadmin' . 'pma__table_uiprefs' WHERE 'username' = 'jeff' AND 'db_name' = 'Cars' AND 'table_name' = 'INVENTORY' MySQL said: #1146 - Table 'phpmyadmin.pma__table_uiprefs' doesn't exist
If I click on columns under INVENTORY or the Structure tab above I can view the table and columns. Also when I click on the SQL tab I can view the table columns in the right-hand pane and the number 1 appears in the SQL command text field. If more information is needed please let me know.

Looks like your trying to work within phpmyadmin's database. You need to switch to your cars database you created.
