So I have particular problem. Like some others i'm new to this whole database, myphp, MySQL stuff. I need someone to break it down for me to the reallll dumb levels.
My issue: I downloaded and installed the Moodle 3.8 version. I have all of the files extracted to my C: drive, I can start moodle, login through localhost. I started using it, putting training content in it, then left for about a week. Came back and forgot the admin user/pass.
I don't know anything about databases, how to setup myphpadmin, how to access the database through MySQL. I've been trying to google/search the forum for someone to really break it down and everyone has instructions, but not from the VERY beginning. Somehow, I need to get the user/pass for the admin login. But I need to first understand how to install/get access to the database, which seems to require understanding how to access/use MySQL or how to setup myphpadmin.
Sorry, i'm just completely lost. I would uninstall the moodle server I have, and reinstall, if I wasn't worried about losing what I've already done.
