Very New to XAMPP and MySQL

Postby libbyaudrey » 19. September 2019 01:49

Hi All,

I'm extremely new to using XAMPP and MySQL. I've downloaded XAMPP and can get the terminal for MySQL to run, but I don't know where to begin to build my database. I can't even figure out how to log in. I've used Oracle Express 11g in the past, but that's it as far as databases go. Oh, and Microsoft Access.

I've tried Googling and can't find an updated XAMPP/MySQL example.

I'll take all the help I can get. Basically, I need to create an application with a functioning GUI that will create databases in MySQL. My GUI will be built using JavaFX.

I'll take any help I can get since I feel overwhelmed about where to begin.

Thank you in advance!
Libby

http://localhost should show the Xampp Dashboard, click on "phpMyAdmin" in the top menu. PhpMyAdmin is a graphical GUI for accessing MySQL, it logs in automatically.

I have the same problem... I´m, very new too... So, I followed all the steps, but when I clicked on PHPAdmin, an error page pops up saying: "XAMPP New security concept:
Access to the requested directory is only available from the local network.
This setting can be configured in the file "httpd-xampp.conf". "Error 403 ...
So I can not create a new database, and when I type in the browser "localhost", nothing appears ...
