Normally where would you set phpMyAdmin to create databases and tables?  I am completely new to phpMyAdmin and want to make sure I don't start off wrong and have to redo everything.  Thanks!

So, for instance, if I have the following, what would I do to make it go to that?

$cfg['UploadDir'] = 'http://localhost/';
$cfg['SaveDir'] = 'http://localhost/';

$cfg['UploadDir']  and $cfg['SaveDir'] as just the directories where sql files and sql dumps will be stored ... its not where the databases are created.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

So you are saying, if I'm following you correctly, that I would make both $cfg['UploadDir']  and $cfg['SaveDir'] to point to \mysql\data?

no \mysql\data is where the actual databases are created and its outsite the document root.

just make a folder mysql/upload for $cfg['UploadDir'] and mysql/download for $cfg['SaveDir']
