Default MySQL isntallation?

I am trying to install Mod X CMS & Prestashop.

It requires a MySQL datasbase to do so.

I have downloaded MySQL, but I am now stuck, how to install it, do I need to load this into/onto my site via FTP?

your site if you mean on the web, has to be already configured for mysql and php, heck on your sites control panel or with your hoster.
if you want to set up a test server on your computer then it would be simpler to use wamp or xxamp

Hi, yeh I actually do have it on my host.

I managed to get through the first part on MOD X installation, but got stuck when it came to this -

Checking database: failed - could not create database, Ive had a look on the admin on the server, but I cannot see permissions, any ideas?

maybe you have to create the database first and add a user. i cant remeber with modx. otherwise make sure you give the correct user password when installing

Yes, create the database with a username (all privileges) and then run the install for Modx where it asks you to give username, password, host location etc. It tends to do it all automagically once you've created an empty DB.
