phpMyAdmin create dbWelcome back I am now going to talk about the way that MAMP handles serving up files through Apache2. By default you install MAMP into the Applications directory on Mac OSX in a folder and the default path to the folder that is being served by Apache is /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/ . This is the folder that you will want to expand the Drupal folder after you have downloaded it directly from Drupal.org (if you are running MAMP which I will assume you are if you are reading through my little howto scenario here then you are running MySql 5) you need to create and populate phpMyAdmin Create drupal userthe database for Drupal. To do this you will need to pop over to phpMyAdmin (see screenshot to the right)and create a new database called whatever you like, and also create a new user for security reasons to assure that drupal can talk to your database without using the root account. Create a new user with a password you will need this to tell drupal what the default link connection information is to your new database.phpMyAdmin drupal user rights adn privilidges After this you will need to grants the user rights to your newly created database, this is very simple because the user you created can just be given all rights by clicking the check all link at the top of the database privileges window. I am off to my day job now I will try to work on the next installment in this howTo later today 🙂
