Joomla Database

Postby bluesguy » 19. January 2011 22:30

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.



Best Regards,
bluesguy

Hi bluesguy,

There is no Database creation function in none of the leading PHP CMS, because this will not work in most of the webhosting packages where you have just a limited amount of databases.

Sure. You can create a new database with phpmyadmin which is part of the XAMPP package.
Alternatively you can use the mysql command line interface.

In your RDBMS!?

Your mysql user accounts are stored in your Database too.
Maybe i don't understand your question.

Altrea,
Thanks for the reply and info. I have since learned that I could have created a database or user via the xampp panel utilizing phpmyadmin.
Live and learn trial and error seems to be the path to enlightenment, but it is rough and slow going. What you don't know what you don't know is a killer.
Seems as if I am constantly running into problems, now it seems another one has popped up with these messages: could not connect to the database, connector returned number unable to connect to the database could not connect to mysql. I have verified that all names, passwords, etc are the same, but no cigar.
