I can't seem to get any help from MySQL forums so I could use some guidance on setting up MySQL since it came with Xampp for Windows.
I host my own website with my own server using the Apache Xampp for Windows loaded about 3 years ago. This package came with a number of services including MySQL. I haven't had any use for MySQL until now. I hired a web developer who needs to log into MySQL to setup the e-commerce. All that I have done is installed MySQL and now I'm staring at a window titled "WinMySQLadmin 1.4". From here I have no idea what I need to do so my web developer can login and setup the e-commerce. This is where I need your help.
The only thing "I think" I need to do next is copy the "my.ini" information from the my.ini tab and paste it as a file in the suggested folder in the file. However, I'm unsure. So here are my questions?
1) Is my next step to copy and paste as an INI file the my.ini information to the appropriate directory?
2) From there what do I need to do to create a login and password for my web developer?
3) Can I upgrade this version (i.e. 1.4) to the latest and not mess up the Xampp control panel and all?
I may have other questions, but these are the obvious to me.
Thanks for your patience and assistance
