Phpmyadmin error

I can access phpmyadmin just fine using the username and password that I set up in the panel, but when I try to create a new table in an existing database, I get errors.

I type a name into the box, like “dbcontent” and then in the “Number of fields” box I type 3 or 4 or 5 or whatever, and when I click on “Go” I get the following error:

MySQL said:
The field count is empty!

The field count is most definitely not empty. Is there a workaround for this? Is phpmyadmin misconfigured?
