I have recently installed Magento 1.9.2. without sample data. Everything seems to go smoothly.
Cache is disabled, compilation is off. Re-indexed all.
I can get into the frontend - the shop looks fine.
I am able to make changes, add products, add categories in the menu-bar and so on.
Back-end also seems to work properly.
But when i add a new page there is no store-view option to fill in. Neither is there such an option to fill in with existing pages.
The whole box is missing.
Does this sound familiar to anyone.
Will you please share screenshort of your problem for better understanding?
I would diff your code with a clean copy of Magento. It sounds like you maybe are missing a file.
This would be more of a file base problem then a database problem.
