I've successfully installed XAMPP. I've successfully gone to my localhost and also done port forward to be able to access from the internet.
I've also successfully added a user and password, so that when you access /IPaddy/user, it will ask for a user and password. This was done in the httpd.conf file.
What I don't understand is how the sql database comes into play. I see questions on adding users to the database and such. Does this also control user access?
Can someone point me to info on this subject?
