so it is not possible to use the lampp mysql server with the mysql++ api?
because the lampp mysql server _was_ running..
as I tried to start the mysql server you told me i got an error..
so i stopped the lampp serverpackage and tried again..
mysql started but I was unable to set password for root@localhost
[root@localhost ~]# /usr/bin/mysqladmin -h localhost -u root password
/usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'
but thats not so important.. examples work..
but the problem i have now is:
can I use phpmyadmin with this server or not?
because the project I want to code is based on the MySQL server included
in the lampp package.
hope so and thx 4 help
