New to PHP/MYSQL - phpMyAdmin won't open

This is the error I get.

404 Not Found

The requested URL /phpMyAdmin/ was not found on this server.

I’m new to this and I’d greatly appreciate any help. I’m using the most recent version of Zend Server downloaded to my desktop on Windows 8. Again, I’m new to php/mysql and am trying to learn the basics. But I can not figure out how to get phpMyAdmin to launch. Please, any help is greatly appreciated.

404 = Page not found.

Means the server can’t find what your looking for.

Regarding phpMyAdmin, you upload it to your server and run it through a browser to manipulate your database.
In your post, you say your using the most recent version of Zend downloaded to you desktop. Not sure I get that bit…

If your trying to setup a local test suite - IE: server/php/mysql/etc. May i suggest you download software called WAMP as i believe it’s an all in one installation. This however is not the recommended way to go. PHP manual states the best way is to set it up manually. If you don’t know how to, it can be a bit daunting.

Take a look here, I wrote a tutorial on how to set up a complete local suite. :wink:

Thank you so much, I got it to work finally :slight_smile:

Cool 8)
Glad i could help - if i did :stuck_out_tongue:
