    Hi all:

    Environment:
    OS: WindowsXP Professional Beta 2, IIS 5.1 installed.
    PHP and MySQL installed as they are and nothing was modified.
    Put hello.php into \inetpub\wwwroot and it works.

    MySQL + PHP Questions:
    1. I am trying to test vBulletin on the local machine. It need db name, username, and password. How do I create a new password for "root"?
    2. How do I create a blank new database?
    3. How do I create a new user?
    4. How do I add the user so that the user can modify the certain database?
    5. I tried to test phpBB on the local machine, and it asked me to change the file attributes. I know how to do it with an ftp client, but how to do it on a windows machine?

    Windows Questions: (WindowsXP + Symantec Internet Seciruty FE 2.5)
    1. After installed the IIS 5.1, and I started the server. I can read the file in \wwwroot\ by typing "localhost" or my IP. The problem is: I could get access to my IP from other machines. Is this a firewall issue? Or how to make accessable by others?

    A lot of questions, but I really need you help.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    To do all your databse work you can use phpMyAdmin from http://phpwizard.net/projects/phpMyAdmin/

    It can do a lot of things (including creating databases) and is pretty much standard now.

    But I think you could use it to admin the db on the web. Could I use it on my local machine?

    Hi,

    Yes you can use it on your local machine it is just a set of php scripts. You might think about downloading a program to install Apache, PHP, MySQL, Perl and phpMyAdmin such as phptriad from http://www.phpgeek.com

    I have downloaded and installed mysql, php, perl. Not enough for testing mysql and php on my local machine?

    No body knows how to setup a new users and new db? I don't think so. Please help.

    By reading mysql documents, at least I got one to work.

    Questions left:

    5. I tried to test phpBB on the local machine, and it asked me to change the file attributes. I know how to do it with an ftp client, but how to do it on a windows machine?
