mm... hi guys/girls whoever reads this !
so i'm havin a problem with setting up phpMyAdmin .
i am following a book to learn php and after installing XAMPP for windows i checked to see if phpMyAdmin was set up correctly and in the bottom of the page i get the following error

The additional features for working with linked tables have been deactivated. To find out why click here.

now i have no idea what all this is about, i'm a total beginner on php, haven't written the first php line yet.
it says it was something about

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking'] ... not OK [Documentation]
Tracking: Disabled

so is it ok to run the server and continue learning php, if it's not please can you explain to me how to fix this ? in the most simple terms please...
