Xampp Issues

I just recently installed xampp portable. I had everything up and running. I even went to my localhost and the xampp screen comes up meaning my webserver was working correctly. And I clicked on the phpinfo() and that popped up and it seemed to be working correctly. With this all in mind I was wondering if im supposed to be saving all my work in the htadocs? Is this like my internet folder for my web server? Because I seem to save it anywhere else it won’t work? Also id there any way to manage mySql Databases in xampp other than doing it web based?

Yep.

htdocs/ is your web root, so if you put a file in there called index.html, you'll be able to access it from http://localhost/index.html

Also, you can do it manually using the command line.

For more information/help, head over to the Apache Friends forum, as they'll be able to help you more.

htdocs

unfortunaley, real index is in xampp (localhost/xampp/index.php), so you can storage yours files into root/httdocs/xampp/.
I added index.htm and renamed index.php to index2.php, in index.htm i made a table of contents (all was black, only link to index2.php was white so oly I knew where to click to get to xampp status page) and if you wish to install something you just put into htdocs/xampp/

edit: mysql databases are storaged into root/mysql/data

EDIT2: to see my index.htm check this: knezan94.my-webs.org/index_xampp.htm you will se, that there is 2 lines later is link to index2.php wich is xampp's status etc

Nope.

You put everything into xampp/htdocs/
There is simply an index.php (or maybe it's the .htaccess) that redirects you to /xampp/
You can delete everything in xampp/htdocs/ if you want to see for your self.

.htaccess controls who can

.htaccess controls who can access the folder. The default 'xampp/htdocs/index.php' is the file that redirects to the xampp status page.
