MYSQL Database question (2 posts)

    I already run mysql for another application. I went into phpmyadmin and created a database. it is there if i browse the folders, i can see it, but in phpmyadmin it doesn't show up but if i try to recreate it it says it's created already. Can i just delete the database from the folder using Windows explorer and then recreate it? will this cause problems by deleting it this way?

    You should have no problem deleting the database's directory and files. MySQL doesn't retain info about a database outside it's file structure, so it's like running a DROP dbname through your mysql tools.
