OK I got phpMyAdmin 2.9.2 from --> http://www.phpmyadmi...e/downloads.php
<-- and downloaded the 'english.zip' file.
I've downloaded that same file and deleted it several times thinking that I might have gotten a bad download because every where that I read it tells me that the config.inc.php file is supposed to be generated during installation.
As for as the documentation goes, I've been reading mine so much that it doesn't hardly have any words left on the page!
I'm looking at #1 in the quick start section where it says;
--> Untar or unzip the distribution (be sure to unzip the subdirectories): tar -xzvf phpMyAdmin_x.x.x.tar.gz in your webserver's document root. <--
That is confusing me somewhat as I'm not sure what they mean by 'webserver's document root'.
So far I have downloaded and installed the following programs in the following order;
Apache HTTP server 2.0.59 to --> C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2
PHP 5.2.1 to --> C:\PHP
MySQL 5.0 to --> C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0
phpMyAdmin 2.9.2 to --> C:\SERVER\HTTP\Restricted\phpMyAdmin-2.9.2-english
Does that look like I put those suckers in the right place or do I need to move something? Right now everything is working except for phpMyAdmin and that's not working yet because I haven't gotten that concig file where it's supposed to go.
Then I get to step #3 where it says --> Traditionally, users have hand-edited a copy of config.inc.php, but now a wizard-style setup script is provided for those who prefer a graphical installation. [then farther down] Instead of manually editing config.inc.php, you can use the Setup Script. [then farther down] Next, open scripts/setup.php in your browser. <-- When I clicked on that link it opened that file in word pad.
Question: How the heck do I get the file 'scripts/setup.php' to open in my browser? I tried right clicking and open with IE but that didn't work. Is there another way to make that setup thing work for me?
Thanks for your time and help here.
