Hi Experts and Developers,
I am just starting out on using MySQL and dbExpress in Delphi. Since I have been developing Database applications using BDE in Delphi I have always kept my database [tables] in a subdirectory of my application directory.
My question is: Is it possible to still use the same layout for my new projects using MySQL or does MySQL impose a restriction on the location of the database. I have noted there is a data subdirectory in MySQL home directory that houses all databases. I would still wish to keep my databases in my project directory outside MySQL!
