WinMySqlAdmin not connected

Postby rmelchior » 14. November 2007 00:51

I can access MySql through PHPAdmin just fine. But with WinMySqlAdmin I only see environment tab (all entries greyed out) and the myini setup tab where I seen to be able to edit the file. None of the other tabs show any information. I tried installing an ODBC connector and now (greyed out) i can see both Driver Version 2.5 and Version 3 . I installed both to see if it would help. I've tried removing 3 but it doesn't seem to go away even if I disable the dll file.

All services Apache MySql and PHP are running.

any suggestions on getting this connected.

Don't use this program. It's deprecated long time.

(BTW: You must have a "my.ini" in %WinDir%, with a special section for this program. In this section you must define a valid user/pass which this program should use for the connection. ODBC is not necessary for this program)

The my.ini file is in the proper place. It has a winmysqladmin section with the correct user name and password.
So if this program is deprecated...would I use phpadmin to create databases and check them?

What ever program you want use to do this. phpMyAdmin is one of them. You can also just use the shell client "mysql.exe".

BTW:
With WinMySqlAdmin you can't create databases.
