Creating a the LAMS database
We use lams as database name and db user and lamsdemo as password. These are the default settings, but you can set your own. Just make sure you change these settings when you build LAMS (see common.properties file).
Only required if you know what you are doing.
For those interested, you can find out more about installing and configuring MySQL from the MySQL chapter on Windows installation. For LAMS usage, the defaults in the installer should be fine.
