phpmyadmin - count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable

I've uploaded the backup to a table, opening the table I see this:

Warning in ./libraries/sql.lib.php#601

Inside phpMyAdmin...

PHP is 7.2, the server is Ubuntu 16.04, installed yesterday.

Looking for I saw that some have this error in their code, but I did not find anyone who received it in phpMyAdmin...

What should I do? Is that my error? A phpmyadmin error? wait update ? I go back to PHP 7.1?

Edit file /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php:

sudo nano /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

On line 613 the count function always evaluates to true since there is no closing parenthesis after $analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']. Making the below replacements resolves this, then you will need to delete the last closing parenthesis on line 614, as it's now an extra parenthesis.

Replace:

((empty($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']))
    || (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)
        && ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*')))

With:

((empty($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']))
    || (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1)
        && ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*'))

Restart the server apache:

sudo service apache2 restart

Easiest Method:

Just run this below command line in terminal and come back to PhpMyAdmin. Now it works fine :)

sudo sed -i "s/|\s*\((count(\$analyzed_sql_results\['select_expr'\]\)/| (\1)/g" /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

Manual Method:

Open sql.lib.php file

nano /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

Find for count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] code on file. You can get this at line ~613. You can see this below wrong code

|| (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)

Just replace that wrong code with this below one

|| ((count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1)

Save the file and come to PhpMyAdmin.

Now it works fine :)


I found this PHP 7.2 count() - SYNTAX error in sql.lib.php

That perfectly works on my config:

Debian 9, 
PHP 7.2.3-1+0~20180306120016.19+stretch~1.gbp81bf3b (cli) (built: Mar  6 2018 12:00:19) ( NTS )

Open /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

Change line: Move parenthesis before ==

|| ((count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] ) == 1) && ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*')))

in

function PMA_isRememberSortingOrder($analyzed_sql_results){

return $GLOBALS['cfg']['RememberSorting']
    && ! ($analyzed_sql_results['is_count']
        || $analyzed_sql_results['is_export']
        || $analyzed_sql_results['is_func']
        || $analyzed_sql_results['is_analyse'])
    && $analyzed_sql_results['select_from']
    && ((empty($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']))
        || ((count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] ) == 1)
            && ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*')))
    && count($analyzed_sql_results['select_tables']) == 1;
 }

tested on Debian, should works on Ubuntu:

1.) First download latest phpMyadmin file.

2.) Delete (make a backup) all previous version file located in /usr/share/phpmyadmin directory.

3.) Uncompress to /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ directory all files of latest phpmyadmin.

4.) Modify file libraries/vendor_config.php and change line:

define('CONFIG_DIR', '');

to

define('CONFIG_DIR', '/etc/phpmyadmin/');

and

define('TEMP_DIR', './tmp/');

to

define('TEMP_DIR', '/tmp/');

5.) restart apache server and done.


Edit file: '/usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php'

Replace: (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)

With: (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1

this worked for me


Works on UBUNTU 18.04 


Edit file: '/usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php'
Replace: (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)
With:  ((count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1)

Restart the server
sudo service apache2 restart

If someone have similar error in DB export page (I had this issue in Ubuntu 18.04), then replace line 551 in file /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/plugin_interface.lib.php with code

if ($options != null && (is_array($options) || $options instanceof Countable) && count($options) > 0) {

phpmyadmin 4.7.4 is supposed to have "Fixed several compatibility issues with PHP 7.2"

Chances are you have an older version of phpmyadmin.

https://www.phpmyadmin.net/news/2017/8/24/phpmyadmin-474-released/


Proceed following steps at ubuntu-18.04:

Step 1) locate sql.lib.php

It will show something like:

/usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

Step 2) Open terminal (Alt t) and write:

sudo /usr/sbin/pma-configure

Step 3)sudo gedit /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php and search below function:

 

    function PMA_isRememberSortingOrder($analyzed_sql_results)
     {
        return $GLOBALS['cfg']['RememberSorting']
            && ! ($analyzed_sql_results['is_count']
                || $analyzed_sql_results['is_export']
                || $analyzed_sql_results['is_func']
                || $analyzed_sql_results['is_analyse'])
            && $analyzed_sql_results['select_from']
            && ((empty($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']))
                || (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)
                    && ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*')))
            && count($analyzed_sql_results['select_tables']) == 1;
     }

Step 4) Replace above function with:


     function PMA_isRememberSortingOrder($analyzed_sql_results)
     {
        return $GLOBALS['cfg']['RememberSorting']
            && ! ($analyzed_sql_results['is_count']
                || $analyzed_sql_results['is_export']
                || $analyzed_sql_results['is_func']
                || $analyzed_sql_results['is_analyse'])
            && $analyzed_sql_results['select_from']
            && ((empty($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']))
                || (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1)
                    && ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*'))
            && count($analyzed_sql_results['select_tables']) == 1;
     }

Step 4) Save & close file and below command on terminal

sudo /usr/sbin/pma-secure

Step 5) sudo service mysql reload

Step 6) sudo service apache2 reload

It works for me.. Goodluck


open this file: '/usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php'

sudo nano /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

press ctrl+w to search (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)

Find: count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)

Replace With:  (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1)

Restart the server

 sudo service apache2 restart

moreover, If you still facing same issue then do following.

open this file /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/plugin_interface.lib.php

sudo nano /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/plugin_interface.lib.php

Find : if ($options != null && count($options) > 0) {

Ctrl+w : if ($options != null && count($options) > 0) {

replace with following code

if ($options != null && count((array)$options) > 0) {

now save and restart the server

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Try replace this function in file: /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

function PMA_isRememberSortingOrder($analyzed_sql_results)
{
    return $GLOBALS['cfg']['RememberSorting']
        && ! ($analyzed_sql_results['is_count']
            || $analyzed_sql_results['is_export']
            || $analyzed_sql_results['is_func']
            || $analyzed_sql_results['is_analyse'])
        && $analyzed_sql_results['select_from']
        && ((empty($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']))
            || (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1)
                && ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*'))
        && count($analyzed_sql_results['select_tables']) == 1;
}

I think the best option is to update Phpmyadmin to a versión which has this already fixed.

Until it is published as a deb, you could do it like in @crimson-501 answer which I will copy below:

  • Your first step is to install PMA (phpMyAdmin) from the official Ubuntu repo: apt-get install phpmyadmin.
  • Next, cd into usr/share directory: cd /usr/share.
  • Third, remove the phpmyadmin directory: rm -rf phpmyadmin.
  • Now we need to download the latest PMA version onto our system (Note that you need wget: apt-get install wget): wget -P /usr/share/ "https://files.phpmyadmin.net/phpMyAdmin/4.8.2/phpMyAdmin-4.8.2-english.zip" Let me explain the arguments of this command, -P defines the path and "the link.zip" is currently (7/17/18) the latest version of PMA. You can find those links HERE.
  • For this next step you need unzip (apt-get install unzip): unzip phpMyAdmin-4.8.2-english.zip. We just unzipped PMA, now we will move it to it's final home.
  • Lets use the cp (copy) command to move our files! Note that we have to add the -r argument since this is a folder. cp -r phpMyAdmin-4.8.2-english phpmyadmin.
  • Now it's time to clean up: rm -rf phpMyAdmin-4.8.2-english.
Keep Reading!

You might now notice two errors after you log into PMA.

the configuration file now needs a secret passphrase (blowfish_secret). phpmyadmin
The $cfg['TempDir'] (./tmp/) is not accessible. phpMyAdmin is not able to cache templates and will be slow because of this.

However, these issues are relatively easy to fix. For the first issue all you have to do is grab your editor of choice and edit /usr/share/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php but there's a problem, we removed it! That's ok, all you have to do is: cd /usr/share/phpmyadmin & cp config.sample.inc.php config.inc.php.

Example phpMyAdmin Blowfish Secret Variable Entry:

/*
 * This is needed for cookie based authentication to encrypt password in
 * cookie
 */
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = '{^QP+-(3mlHy+Gd~FE3mN{gIATs^1lX+T=KVYv{ubK*U0V'; 
/* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */

Now save and close the file.

  • Now we will create a tmp directory for PMA: mkdir tmp & chown -R www-data:www-data /usr/share/phpmyadmin/tmp. The last command allows the Apache web server to own the tmp directory and edit it's contents.

Ubuntu 18.10 (December, 2018)

Line 613, 614, 615, replace with:

        || count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1
            && ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*'))
    && count($analyzed_sql_results['select_tables']) == 1;

Work for me.. Ubuntu 18.04

sudo nano /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

Find for count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] code on file. You can get this at line ~613.

|| (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)

Just replace with code :

|| ((count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1)

Save the file and reload PhpMyAdmin.

Done!!!


Works on UBUNTU 16.04.3 Just open

usr/share/libraries/sql.lib.php

modify

|| (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)

To

|| ((count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1)


This is fixed in later versions of PHPMyAdmin. The Ubuntu Software Repositories for Ubuntu 18.04.2 holds version 4.6.6.5, while they're currently at 4.9.0.1. Updating your PHPMyAdmin installation will fix this problem, but might prove to be riskier than just editing that one line of code. Here's how I did it on my Ubuntu Server. Steps are essentially the same (with a different path) for all operating systems.

  1. Download PHPMyAdmin.
wget https://files.phpmyadmin.net/phpMyAdmin/4.9.0.1/phpMyAdmin-4.9.0.1-all-languages.zip
unzip phpMyAdmin-4.9.0.1-all-languages.zip
  1. Backup your old PHPMyAdmin installation.
cp -r /usr/share/phpmyadmin ~/phpmyadmin-backup
  1. Drop your new PHPMyAdmin on your old PHPMyAdmin
cd phpMyAdmin-4.9.0.1-all-languages
rm -r /usr/share/phpmyadmin/doc/html
cp -R * /usr/share/phpmyadmin/

Verify that it works. If it doesn't, welll... You have a backup, so restore it and manually edit the faulty line. In my own personal experience, I discovered after doing this that version 4.6.6.5 was not only riddled with bugs, but also incredibly slow compared to the new 4.9.0.1. The speed increase was pure magic for something I though was of "WordPress" quality.


Edit file '/usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php' Replace: (make backup)

"|| (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1) 
&&($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*'))) 
&& count($analyzed_sql_results['select_tables']) == 1;"

With:

"|| (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1) 
&& ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*') 
&& (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_tables']) == 1));"

For my version of phpmyadmin (4.6.6deb5), I found line 613, and realized the count() parentheses were not closed properly. To fix this temporarily until the next release, just change:

|| (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)

to:

|| (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1

I tried all of above solution but didn't work for me.

Try this:-

Install required version of PHP(in my case 7.0) and then in terminal, type

sudo update-alternatives --config php

Output will be like this :-

Then you can switch to any version of PHP by simply entering the selection number(in my case 1).

Hope this may help other -:)


I had this issue when using windows and the responses above solved it for me, however when i switched to linux (ubuntu 18.04 LTS) I had the same issue and couldn't figure out how to solve it because I didn't see the file '/usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php'.

This sql.lib.php file wasn't in the share folder or the phpmyadmin/libraries folder of my /opt/lampp directory - since I was using xampp on my ubuntu. Based on the update made to the xampp (because I used the latest installation as of now) setup.

The answer is still to replace: (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)

With: (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1

However the file to look for is Sql.php found in /opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/libraries/classes/Sql.php

Future updates or if you still don't find it: use grep -r 'count($analyzed_sql_results' /opt/lampp/phpmyadmin to search for matching documents in your directory and edit accordingly


Upgrade to phpMyAdmin 4.8.3. this solves the PHP 7.2 compatibility issues


|| ((count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1

This is what I changed in line 614 and phpmyadmin works without any error. Need one ( before count, and one ) before == . That's it.


Replace Function:

function PMA_isRememberSortingOrder($analyzed_sql_results) {
return $GLOBALS['cfg']['RememberSorting']
    &&!(
        $analyzed_sql_results['is_count']
        || $analyzed_sql_results['is_export']
        || $analyzed_sql_results['is_func']
        || $analyzed_sql_results['is_analyse']
    )&&
    $analyzed_sql_results['select_from']&&
    (
        empty($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'])||
        count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'])==1&&
        $analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*'
    )
    && count($analyzed_sql_results['select_tables']) == 1;
}

On Ubuntu 18.04 with MariaDb and Nginx, I solved it with updating file /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php as follows:

|| (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1

The answer mentioned by @Nguyen throws a 500 error saying:

FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: PHP Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected ')', expecting ';' in /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php on line 614"

Hi the following solve my same problem absolutely (import/export and so on):

Fix Bug Phpmyadmin [plugin_interface.lib.php] + Php7.2 + Ubuntu 16.04

so... under ubuntu 18.04, mysql, php7.2: Terminal:

sudo gedit /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/plugin_interface.lib.php

Find the following line(ctrl+f):

if ($options != null && count($options) > 0) {

it was on line #551 for me

and change for following:

if ($options != null && count((array)$options) > 0) {

ctrl+s for save the changes

and in terminal: ctrl+c for get back promt...

and: sudo systemctl restart apache2

"I think in new php version.It can’t use count() or sizeof() with un array type. Force parameter to array is easy way to solve this bug,..."

Thanks for the original author for the problem solving! I try to share it!


is_countable function introduced in (PHP 7 >= 7.3.0)

is_countable — Verify that the contents of a variable is a countable value.

use this function following way ::

is_countable ( $var )

It will return boolean value. For more detail please visit on http://php.net/manual/en/function.is-countable.php


Take a look: https://devanswers.co/problem-php-7-2-phpmyadmin-warning-in-librariessql-count/

Firstly, backup sql.lib.php before editing. Edit sql.lib.php in nano.

$ sudo nano /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

Press CTRL + W and search for (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'] == 1)

Replace it with ((count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1)

Save file and exit. (Press CTRL + X, press Y and then press ENTER)


none of these solutions worked for me you need to update phpmyadmin to the latest, follow instructions here

https://askubuntu.com/questions/947805/how-to-upgrade-phpmyadmin-revisited


Edit file /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

See an error on your error

./libraries/sql.lib.php#2038: PMA_isRememberSortingOrder(array)
./libraries/sql.lib.php#1984: PMA_executeQueryAndGetQueryResponse(

go to this line and remove the function call.

It works for me.


As the error in code in conf file may vary (@Jacky Nguyen vs @ĦΔŇĐŘΔ ŇΔҜҜΔ answers),the general solution answer would be to a) correct the condition logic in conf file to make sense (x)or b) install corrected/current phpmyadmin

As for a)

  1. open the file with error code For the terminal people: sudo nano /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php For the regular folks: sudo gedit /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/sql.lib.php

  2. find the condition - basically search for $analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']

  3. now the logic should be to check whether this sub array is empty, or, whether it has just 1 element with a value "*

  4. so basically the block between && $analyzed_sql_results['select_from']and && count($analyzed_sql_results['select_tables']) == 1 should look something like this

&& (
    empty($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) //the sub array is empty,
    || //or,
    (
        (count($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr']) == 1) //it has just 1 element
        && //and at the same time
        ($analyzed_sql_results['select_expr'][0] == '*') //the 1 element value is "*"
    )
)

This is a good example of why to indent and beautify your code, if it would be indeted correctly, I believe this would never happen, or at least, would be more easily found.
