I received a zipped WordPress site and a database *.sql file and I'm trying to get it to run on my local PC as a test. The first thing I'm trying to do is attach my sql file to a MySQL database so that it will create all the tables. I'm not familiar with MySQL.
I installed Bitnami on a Windows 7 PC and during install gave it a Admin Account username and password. During install, it said it installed MySQL as a windows service. But, MySQL is not listed as a running service. However, when I run the Manager Tool, it says: MySQL Database - Running, Apache Web Service - Running.
When I run PHPAdmin, I use the same login I gave it for the Admin Account when installing Bitnami. When I click Databases, it shows the "information_scheme" and "test" databases in the list. The problem is that under Create new database: it shows a red x and to the right "No Privileges". I assume the first thing I need to do to is create a database and then import the *.sql file I was given so that it will set up the tables for the WordPress site. But how can I create a database with this error? And how could Bitnami not install MySql so that its Admin Account has privileges to create a database on the MySQL that Bitnami itself installs?
