I have a fast connection between the web server and all of our database servers. Shuffling data between the servers take little or no time. I don't know at which point this "feature" was introduced into phpma, but the pagination of the database list is something I'd like to get rid of.
I found the two configuration options:
$cfg['DisplayDatabasesList'] = false;
$cfg['MaxDbList'] = 100;
but I still get pagination (perhaps in navigation.php?), which I think should be optional.
