  11. If you get ERROR#1018: SHOW PLUGINS SONAME LIKE ‘{6c85689da4238259371ec3643cce4c730fb2096ba6fc33e37ce8e8dc99f3f604}_password_check{6c85689da4238259371ec3643cce4c730fb2096ba6fc33e37ce8e8dc99f3f604}’
    If you installed XAMPP in the default folder C:xampp go and manually create the folder C:xamppmysqllibplugin in Explorer. This should fix the user creation issue.

  12. Clear concise instructions with explanations of what is happening. One of the better videos. Went looking for more but sadly there are none. Thank you anyway for this one.
