Hello. I have a little problem with the mysql supplied with Xampp 1.8.3
(i don't know if my xampp is 1.8.3, 1.83-I or II...)
When I try to create a user, mysqld.exe program stops working.
Anyway, using the phpmyadmin interface, or by running a simple sql such as:
CREATE USER 'user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
To see if you know something about that.
