real NEWb question.....

P: n/a


But I'm stumped.....
I've got a windows 2000 server and I am trying to set up PHPBB on it using a
mysql database.. I am very inexperienced on this.....

Ive installed mysql V4.0.20d and I can get it up and running.
I then run winmysqladmin V1.4 (the mysql service is running)
When I go to databases inside the admin, it shows on the left side the name
of the server and IP address and it has a 'test' database listed below
it.....
From what I've seen (and I've even seen pictures of it), when I right click
in that box, I should get a menu with the option to create a new
database....
BUT I DO NOT!
i get a menu with options to:
Flush: hosts
Flush: Logs
Flush: tables
Flush: threads

these is NO add new database option... Nowhere can I find the ability to add
a new database....
I've removed , re downloaded and reinstalled twice and everything is the
same...
What am I doing wrong??

thank you

i too am a newbie but i got a work around for you as i dont use
winmysqladmin

got to command prompt on your win 2 k box..

cd to c:\mysql\bin or the bin directory under where you installed mysql

run mysql client with the command mysql (or if you set a password already do
something like mysql -uroot -ppassword

once you are in type

create database fred

you will then have a database called fred....

good luck!

Just refresh the browser when looking at phpmyadmin, and in the middle
of the screen there should be an input box to create a new db.
