Where is the database?

I’m probably asking a quite stupid question (I have very little programming experience).

I have successfully installed on MAMP in OSX, but when I connect to the Magento database via phpMyAdmin I get the list of 157 tables in the left frame and the following message for each table:

#1146 - Table ‘Magento.xxx_xxx_xxx’ doesn’t exist

where xxx_xxx_xxx is the name of the table.

The website backend works fine.

I have also tried to rename the Magento folder in Applications\MAMP\db\mysql and the website stops working.

So, if it seems that the data files are in that folder, why can’t I see them in the database tool?

Thanks!

Marco

i’m assuming you specified a prefix when you installed it? or did you try to add a prefix somehow afterwards for whatever reason?
