I'm new to MySQL and downloaded easyphp a while ago and had been using the phpmyadmin GUI to create databases on MySQL. Because I am also doing web development I decided to download Wordpress. But as I was downloading Wordpress I got a message telling me that I did not have MySQL installed on my computer and had to install it first. This shocked me as i had been using MySQL and had created some very important databases which I'm afraid of losing. What should I do? Should I uninstall easyphp and install MySQL separately, but if I do this, won't i lose the databases i had previously created? I thought that Easyphp installed MySQL on the computer. Would Someone please help me in my predicament?
