MYSQL Database question

  • 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.
