Subject Re: [users@httpd] Please Help With Cookies
Date Sun, 30 May 2004 19:38:29 GMT
Hello Tim.  I had been exchanging questions with Ryan Schefke about
server-side programming and he had to step away.  I'm wondering about
compatibility of PHPMyAdmin and MySQL on the same Windows XP Pro platform.
Do you know of any issues in this area?

Thanks

Barth Jones
