Hello everyone

I am currently setting up mamp to use Wordpress and I am now at the stage where I need to create a database through phpmyadmin lite. However I have no experience with this. Can anybody help me out ? All of the tutorials out there are people using the full php version but I cannot find any videos on setting up the lite version on mamp!

Any help would be great.

Jay

Hello Jay,
this mailing list is for phpliteadmin. Note the difference between phpLITEadmin and phpMYadmin.
phpLITEadmin is not a lite version of phpMYadmin. It is a completely different software.
phpMYadmin is for MySQL-databases.
phpLITEadmin is for SQLite-databases.
This means phpliteadmin cannot connect to a MySQL database.
Wordpress usually uses a MySQL database, not a SQLite database. So if you try to manage the DB of wordpress, you cannot use phpliteadmin.

Greetings,
Christopher

Hey thanks for your quick response. Mamp have provided MySQL lite and phpmyadmin lite so are you saying I can install Wordpress using the free software provided ? How would I go about it then, if this is the case ?

If I cannot install Wordpress using the free software ( lite version’s) how can I install Wordpress and be able to create and amend my website without commercial web hosting ?

I have no experience with with mamp. However, neither MySQL nor phpMyAdmin is a software that costs money. It is open source that you can install for free.
You can download phpMyAdmin for free here: https://www.phpmyadmin.net/
You can download MySQL for free here: https://dev.mysql.com/

But this mailing list is not the right place to ask for help if you try to setup Wordpress.

Greetings,
Christopher
