I believe this to not be a Window$ specific question, but I've been forced to do some Win dev work and I'm using XAMPP. I'm also trying to check out phplabman, but I don't think that's necessarily important to the issue. I think I ran a script in phplabman that set up the initial database...at least, MySQL gave no errors when I did. The name of the database is "equipment" that the script sets up, but when I try to do



use equipment;


I get an error saying it is an unknown database.

So, the question is, for this issue and for any other issue, is there a way to see what databases exist?

THANKS!

SHOW databases;


If you want a better Windows *AMP solution, VertigoServ was better IMO. http://vertrigo.sourceforge.net/
