Installing MySQL Standalone0:32 with Randy Hoyt
In this video we'll cover what you need to know to get MySQL up and running as a stand alone service.
[Randy Hoyt] The Database Foundations course walks through installing MySQL and MySQL Workbench
without a software package like MAMP.
That's just fine. Feel free to use that instance of MySQL for this project.
Be sure you know the database information you'll need to connect through MySQL Workbench—
host name, user credentials, and so on.
You'll need that same information to connect the database with PHP.
In future videos I will use the web-based MySQL client that comes with MAMP to execute queries.
When I ask you to open your MySQL client, feel free to use MySQL Workbench instead.
