Step 1. Install and configure MariaDB

You need a database to manage and store adequately the user accounts and other information.

From Wikipedia:

MariaDB is a community-developed branch of the MySQL database, the impetus being the community maintenance of its free status under GPL, as opposed to any uncertainty of MySQL license status under its current ownership by Oracle.

Go to the MariaDB downloads website:

http://downloads.askmonty.org/mariadb/

And download the Windows installer package.

Double click on the downloaded file:

Write a password for the root user, which will be needed any time you want to directly manage a database. Programs can be set up to remember it, though.
