This is what I have found and seems just what I needed. Still have lots of questions, but will finish working thru this example and see what it covers.http://dalibor.dvorski.net/downloads/do ... hXAMPP.pdf
When I try to create the db, I am receiving this error - I have typed the url, copied it and clicked the link in the PDF all yielding an error. While doing the installation there were lots of questions which I may not have answered properly due to lack of knowledge.
I did have apache and mysql running at the time of this error.
Figured it out. Here is the problem. The link uses upper case on words which does not work.
It reads: http://localhost/phpMyAdmin/
Should read: http://localhost/phpmyadmin/
