Darren, that's correct, and it's actually shown how in one of the next videos.

Hey Darren, I'm thinking the Windows installer automatically sets all of that up for you. Here also are some FAQs from the website. :smiley:

I don't think it would automatically do that, considering I might need a unique database for several local installation of wordpress, that wouldn't be appropriate.

Anyway, I figured out how to do it!

I'd recommend putting something like this (albeit with nicer grammar) in the teachers notes below:

"For windows users using Xampp - On your XAMPP Control Panel, click the “Admin” button in the MySQL section to open up phpMyAdmin."

It was this little thing that basically stumped me.

I think it may have been because the process is essentially the same with phpMyAdmin. I'm on a Mac and so it does create a database automatically, though, you're correct for multiple installations.

Here's another question, can you allow access to someone over the internet, to a client for example, to showcase how a website may be coming along, where they can click, resize, play with an almost live view of a website using a programme like this?

This has come up before on the forums, and Jason Seifer recommended localtunnel.

Anytime! Glad you got everything worked out.
