I have a question from about 2:00 through the video when he creates a configuration file. I have windows.

So how do I get this to work? How do I create a configuration file like he does, because when I click on what I need to it does not bring up what I need to be able to do this.

Yes, several TeamTreeHouse courses are frustrating in that the instructor explains things for Mac users and forgets about Windows students. On the bright side, it makes us better programmers because we have to figure out what to look up and problem solve. The easy little sentence that should have been added for Windows users is this: In you browser, go to localhost/phpmyadmin

It would be interesting to see the rate of Windows users who unsubscribe vs. Mac users.

Yes :) It was very similar, I just had to find the "Admin" button, instead of the general settings.

Thanks Michelle, I was lost until I saw this answer, and it was so simple. It would be great if Treehouse could remember that people are also using windows. I wasted ages trying to figure this out!
