I have been working on an internship project and I built a database but I have been doing it under a free hosting website using their PhpMyAdmin. That is very insecure for our data to go to, so I need to transfer the database to my company's network drive so that the data wont be going to the free hosting website, instead it could be on our network. Meanwhile we are waiting for our own sub-domain, but that takes a long time and we will need the site on a temp domain. Is there any way that I can install MySQL directly to my drive? Any instructions or tutorial? Thanks a lot!

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
MYSQL needs to be installed on a server. If you need to stick to a netowrk drive, you could look into [SQLite]: http://www.sqlite.org/ . It doesn't need to be installed and it portable since it just a file. Depending on the way you wrote your queries, you might need to adjust some syntax when swtiching to sqlite.
