Hi there. I've been wanting to setup a Linux system for a while now so that I could play with Apache-MySQL-PHP. My brother introduced me to Vector gold. I couldn't believe how easy it is to setup and use. He then pointed me to the XAMPP web site (I guess it used to be call LAMPP) to get the web server, database, etc that I wanted to play with. I installed it and it works just fine except for one thing. I have not figured out how to actually get into MySQL to create a new database. The demo stuff that came with xampp works just fine. It was after installing it that I saw the "how-to" here in Vector for AMP but xampp loads stuff into different directories. If anyone has any experience with this product, please let me know how to get started.
