I was working on Cpanel for my one of client & one day I got error while I try to open my database table through Cpanel “ Error: Token Mismatch ”. In my 4 year of experience while dealing with PhpMyAdmin, I never came across same error. So it’s new for me, I felt might it’s because of my browser as same day it was stopped working several time. But I tried different browser but the issue was same. I got frustrated as I was working on live server & database as that was a small change.
It seems like my browser may be sending incorrect data or possibly removing the data requisite for authentication entirely. Then I try for clearing my browser cache. Still no luck.
So how I successfully resolved “ Error: Token Mismatch ”?
I had researched and I found that why this occur, let’s get to know why this happen.
While optimizing the tables or opening the databases through PHPMyAdmin, because of /tmp partition is full on the server this happened.
A solution to this is, remove sessions or other unnecessary files & make the disk space available. Otherwise you need to allocate extra disk space to /tmp.
I also found that when my server actual disk space exceed limit it still start showing same error and this time it’s not allowing me to edit my server file as well with ‘Error: Token Mismatch ‘ error in PhpMyAdmin. So I deleted unwanted files from my server (Cpanel) file manager folder, like I was having last three consecutive month backups.
So these solutions worked out for me. I hope if these errors occur with any then my solution may help them.
Also, I read somewhere ‘ Error: Token Mismatch ‘ error in PhpMyAdmin gets solved for many by just clearing the browser cache so hope that too even may work.
