I have installed xampp ok, was in the process of installing joomla via the browser option. was at the database configuration phase when a database name was asked for, nowhere in this whole process was a database creation(names) option given whereby one could be created. Did I miss something along the way? Is there a file or something can be run to create this database, and where would it be created, and where would the name of it be stored.
What files are the password and usernames stored in.
