Yes, a simple walk-thru in creating a database on my webhost through phpMyadmin would be fantastic.
To my knowledge, I do not currently have a database on my webhost. Also, I don't see a simple database creation wizard in phpMyAdmin. The data for the calendar on my existing site is stored in a cgi/bin subdirectory I believe. I have no idea what a CMS is. I just purchased Xsite Pro to redo my site and plan to download Wordpress so that I can incorporate a blog with it, but I'm not nearly that far along yet.
Guess I'm confused on the following... Do I have to create a database AND setup its structure (i.e. name fields, etc.) before using it with E-PHP-C? Or am I essentially just creating a blank database, providing E-PHP-C with all of its details on the Calendar Setup page (i.e. "Database Host", "Database Name", "User ID", "Password", etc.) and then letting E-PHP-C actually create its structure and contents? If I'm simply creating a new database name and letting E-PHP-C take care of the rest, I should be OK if you can walk me through the simple steps of doing it. If I have to do any "programming", then it's time for me to throw-in the towel LOL!
Also, I have no idea how to answer on "Set Database Type to UTF8"? Right now I have a 50/50 chance of getting that correct!
Again, thanks in advance for taking the time to respond to what I know are very simpleton questions and for walking me through the steps to get me going.
