Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: phpMyAdmin.. help getting started

    phpMyAdmin.. help getting started

    okay.. so i'm pretty confused.
    i "seem" to have phpmyadmin installed correctly, but i dont think i installed it in the right place. since i can only view php files locally from my "private" or "public" folders, i made a copy of the whole phpMyAdmin folder, and placed a copy of it in my "private" folder.. something tells me thats not right.. but at least i can view the phpMyAdmin web interface.

    if anybody could clear that up for me, i'd appreciate it..
    but more importantly, now that its installed.. how do i go about making a database?

    could anybody list the steps of creating one using phpmyadmin? i saw a partial example in another thread.. but it was for editing an existing db. the SIMPLEST example would be appreciated..

    right now, i'm so lost.. and even though i really know NOTHING about databses (yet) - i get the impression using phpmyadmin is pretty simple..

    i know i need to create passwords, users, and tables and rows and stuff, "somewhere"..
    but right now, after hitting "create new database", i just dont know what to do.....

    If you need to be handwalked through this I can help you by going through an example of creating a database and a table just email me. Do you know MySQL?
    phpMyAdmin is very large and I only picked it up because I was familiar with the basics of databases(but I'm not an expert).
    Make http://dev.mysql.com your friend. Click on Documentation than click on MySQL Reference Manual .
