creating a database in WAMP (2 posts)

    I have WAMP installed in my local machine. I used it to develop my first website and now I'm trying to build a new website. For my first site, I've accessed my files by localhost:8080/final_project/wp-admin
    For the new project, I'm now trying to configure a new database and because of the "8080" (which I had to do for the first project so as not to have it conflict with Skype) I can't click into phpMyadmin to create a new database. It tries to launch as simply "localhost" and, of course, can't find it. How can I configure the new database if I can't access phpMyadmin from my WAMP panel?

    What about adding the "8080" to the url? So for example, link goes to localhost/phpmyadmin, change it manaully to localhost:8080/phpmyadmin

    Not sure if that "fixes" it, but it's worth a shot. Might do a Google search about pointing Skype/Wamp to different ports to fix the port conflict.
