I have one simple question. It may not have a simple answer.
How do you create a PHP database and test it? I am going over tutorials but when I create a test database when the video is showing my admin php the test database shows up in the video. However, when I log into XAMPP database control panel the database created using the tutorial does not show up in my list of databases. They request myphpadmin and it shows up. However, I do not see it in the XAMPP control panel using XAMPP as the local host.
So my question is. How do you connect a test database using PHP (Notepad++) to the XAMPP control panel?
