Smile PhpMyAdmin MySql Basics - MySql Connect


My apologies if this question is too novice for a forum, but I thought Id give it a shot anyways.

I installed phpMyAdmin to my domain and later tried to Grant privileges to no avail. Im now realizing that it may be because I have not installed MySql.

Can someone sum up the connection between MySql and phpMyAdmin? Also: how do I connect and/or install MySql?

In other words: Is it absolutely necessary to install MySql to run phpMyAdmin?

Any links to quick start guides would HUGELY appreciated.

mysql : YES
you need it to be installed on the host box
to be able to use

phpmyadmin is like mysql admin

but this is web based admin tool for the mysql

other info < just an note > < may not apply here>
if you got n setup like this
PC 1 : www / dns / ftp
PC 2 :mysql server
PC 3 : mail server / webmail Vhost

than you tell the phpmyadmin to look at pc2 <IP> and have an username / password with <PC1 : IP > in the connection from to be able to log into the mysql server
