Hi All

I've installed Xammp and have created a new mySQL database through phpMyAdmin. I have defined a local test site in htdocs (is this the right place?) and want to use Dreamweaver to connect to the new database to get it all up and running.

Trouble is I don't know where to point Dreamweaver in order to connect to the database as I don't know where phpMyAdmin puts these new databases.
Can anyone help please?

The location of the local site is as follows (except where i state XX\YY):

I don't know where phpMyAdmin puts these new databases.

The databases are stored in the MySQL server.

(You can't access (work with) the DBs throught the filesystem)

do you know the full method of setting up a mySql connection with dreamweaver to link to my existing database?

I'm getting very close but slip at the point of selecting the database after stating mySQL server/ocalhost etc.

The predefined login account to MySQL you can find in the "readme_en.txt".
How does dreamweaver connect to MySQL: Though a MySQL library and TCP/IP or through ODBC?

(BTW: I don't know anything about dreamweaver. Maybe you can try the forum search.)
