We have an odd bug that is only affecting us whenever we try to create a user.

We can do any number of actions in PMA, but if we try to create a user we get the error "Error: Token mismatch" and are stuck with that until we logout/login. We can modify user permissions, passwords, etc, but cannot initiate a new user creation.

Auth_type is 'cookie', if that matters.

session.save_path is set properly and the path is properly permissioned.

Any clue as to what might cause this? I saw another Bug report for Token Mismatch, but they said it was affecting anything after a long period of idle, this is very specifically once we try to create a user.

I won't be upset if you merge/close this bug if it is too much like #3893, I just don't know if the issues are stemming from the same root cause.

    I'm getting a similar issue with v4.2.2 - I can log in, go to user management, try to add a user and get a 'Token Mismatch' error in response. One thing of note - this appears to happen for me when administering a MySQL instance running on a different server to the one where phpMyAdmin is installed.

    Ryan G,
    did you try with our current, 4.2.2 version?

    David S, I am not able to reproduce, even with a MySQL instance running on a different server than the web server where phpMyAdmin runs.

    I have not, I will work on upgrading and see if it persists.

    Same problem occurred here twice, each time after an upgrade. Happened also with the latest upgrade to 4.2.2. The problem disappeared after I removed everything the browser remembered about the host where phpMyAdmin was running (cookies, cache, history).

    My issue persists through clearing of cache, cookies and history.
