So I’m trying to set up a mysql so I can use it with express. I’m very new to this and everything is confusing me, so I have a few questions, would appreciate any help!:

-I downloaded the Mysql installer from the website, but its prompting me to install python, visual studio, and a couple of other things. I’ve already installed python, do I have to install all those tools to continue? Since I won’t be using any of them, just node and those tools.

-I’ve seen a lot of people use phpmyadmin, I’ve googled on how to set it up, but still can’t figure it out. Are there any other GUI tools I could use?

Thanks in advance!

Are you on windows? Here you can find the official installation guide: mySql - windows installer
Mac installation: mySql - OS X install

On mac seems fine: about windows installation you can download the community edition and install the web package: this way you would be able to choose just what you really need, not the whole bundle ( which I guess it’s the one you installed because of the visual studio stuff)

Window based? Check this link: Medium - 20+ Best MySql GUI…
