PHP Drupal Basics Getting Started with Drupal Setting Up a Database for Drupal

there is no database in my php admin...i'm using wamp 3.1.0

there is no database set up option in my php myadmin. in fact it won't even let me login. or create a login....it also wouldn't work when i moved the www folder into websites and made the directory changes like she did. this must be a very old video. i don't know how to proceed. here are the url's for the screenshots i took for this question: https://pasteboard.co/H17LcE2.png and: https://pasteboard.co/H17LQDT.png don't know how to tag or i'd tag the teacher or Alena Hanigan....i'm so confused and frustrated

For any screenshot, please upload via a service like https://pasteboard.co/ and give us the link.

Your phpMyAdmin is probably preconfigured and working out of the box. The default user is root and the password is blank (empty).

Don't worry about this for your local development environment.

I enjoy using Adminer.php instead of setting up phpMyAdmin.

If you change your public root directory, you need to restart Wamp, so that might be it.

i hope that's what it is. when i tried moving the www. driectory i did restart and the 3rd server wouldn't start and it said it was because it couldn't find that file. here is the url's to the pastboard screenshots : https://pasteboard.co/H17LcE2.png and: https://pasteboard.co/H17LQDT.png ....and thank you very much for the help.

ok so the root with blank password worked....and there is the database screen she had....but i still can't move the www file to websies like she said to do.

Could you share your httpd.conf file ?

You can easily put it on Pastebin

Edit : They want you to move your projects to C:\websites because you will be able to switch easily between projects.

is that the file she said to change?

i posted it on the pastebin not sure what to do now
