  2. Open phpMyAdmin: Go to your web browser and type "http://localhost/phpmyadmin" in the address bar and hit Enter. This will open the phpMyAdmin page.
  3. Create a new database: Click on the "Databases" tab and enter a name for your new database. Click on "Create" to create the new database.
  4. Create a new user: Click on the "Users" tab and then click on "Add user". Enter a username and password for the new user and make sure to select the database privileges for the user. Click on "Go" to create the new user.
  5. Update database configuration in your code: Update the database configuration in your code to connect to the MySQL database using XAMPP. Use the following configuration settings: Host: localhost Username: The username you created in step 4 Password: The password you created in step 4 Database: The name of the database you created in step 3
