I have just installed XAMPP with PHPMyAdmin 3.5.2.2. I looked everywhere but I can’t seem to find where to create or copy  databases. Am I missing something here?
Please assist.
Many thanks

Make sure you are logged in as the administrator. To create a database go to Home, then Databases. To copy a database, open the database you want to copy and then go to Operations and copy it from there.

you can do this by exporting and importing the databases as SQL. Make sure to include DROP options to delete existing databases before what you want to copy over.
