When you installed MySQL did you also install phpMyAdmin?

If you did install phpMyAdmin use it to create a blank database.


you do not really require the install you could just copy the files to where you want then manually configure the configure.php files.


the database details


server either localhost or

server username is your choice

as is password and the database name
