Originally, Chana together with Palian, Thepha and Songkhla was one of four Mueang subordinate under the Mueang Phatthalung. When Songkhla was split off from Phatthalung and made a direct subordinate of Bangkok, Chana was then placed under Songkhla.
The location of the town was moved several times, so when it was made a district in the thesaphiban administrative reforms at the beginning of the 20th century the district office was located in present-day Na Thawi. However as the location turned out to be inconvenient it was moved to Ban Na. In 1917 the district was thus renamed to Ban Na after the central tambon, in 1924 the name was changed back to Chana by the government to avoid confusion with the district Ban Na in Surat Thani province and Ban Na in Nakhon Nayok province.
The district is subdivided into 14 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 138 villages (muban). Chana is a subdistrict municipality (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of tambon Ban Na. There are further 14 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
