Confused a bit!

So in the video he used MAMP but I don't have a Mac computer. From about 1:30 on what would I need to do to get things going on my Windows Computer? I didn't download MAMP originally but XAMPP b/c of Windows. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ Type that into your browser, then you can continue with the video. Warning: upcoming video assumes you know how to access and use CPanel and FTP. Warning: Will tell you to customize to use Sites folder. Instructions don't work for Windows. For Windows, you can stick to htdoc folder.. Warning: Quiz has questions not covered.

MAMP also has a Windows version.

XAMPP is a nice option (I use WAMP Server though) hope you managed to get it going, cheers!
