Joomla / MySQL

I have installed Joomla on my win 7 PC. I installed XAMPP first (to emulate Apache, MySQL, etc.) on my PC. Getting things to work was a nightmare; see my prior questions on this.

I ran Joomla & it worked; both the front end & the admin site.

Since then I have had to reboot my PC. Now nothing works. The Joomla database is missing from MySQL, phpmyadmin has the pink message at the bottom, etc. See attached.

How do I get back to where I was? Or do I have to re-install Joomla all over, etc.

Not sure how that image tells the story. Is your database not named "test"?

To Joomla_php,

No the database is called joomladb. I can reinstall joomla if that's necessary, I just don't want to have to do that every time after I reboot.

There is a whole bunch of stuff that was in phpmyadmin that is now gone too. Do I have to reinstall XAMPP too?

Right now I am just trying to learn from "Joomla for Dummies" (which I'm not too impressed with, other Dummies books I have found are usually good). Can you recommend a better learning text?

Thanks

The fact that that happened goes way beyond anything to do with Joomla. Nothing should get deleted on a reboot. There is something very wrong, such as maybe a virus.

I have some training vids on allgoodweb.com. Lynda.com is good. Youtube has a bunch of stuff. Anything by Barrie North or Jen Kramer is good (online and books).

To joomla_php,

I had a lot of difficulty rebooting my computer today; It said something about having to skip the latest image backup (or words to that effect). That MIGHT explain it.

I'll uninstall & reinstall it all again.

Thanks
