    Help: MySQL on a local machine


    DA,

    i am university researcher not in the field of computer science.

    i am doing a university project and i have to set up a MySQL db on my computer (win7) (i don't have a server) to gather data from another online db.

    i have installed the program (last version from Oracle), but at the moment of creating the db it requires to access an external IP, so the program gives me a connection error.

    can some one gives me some hints on how can i create a DB that remains on my HDD?

    thank you a lot!

    Even though it is not recommended to run MySQL Server on a local machine, there are some things you can do with it locally:
    1. Use XML
    2. Stick with MySQL, use phpmyadmin, and "export" your db.
    3. Use SQLite as your database engine (Python comes with it by default).
    4. Use object relational mapping to develop once and deploy multiple times.
