I installed phpMyAdmin from sourceforge, following this tutorial.
However, when I login, I see this notice:
The phpMyAdmin configuration storage is not completely configured, some extended features have been deactivated. To find out why click here.
The inactive features are here: http://screencast.com/t/9B01cZ8oT577
For someone who's never configured a server before, what should my next steps be?
I also thought about installing phpmyadmin with certificates to encrypt the data but I'm not sure if this is necessary. If I can simply get my WordPress installation on the server, I figure that's a good first step.
