This is no doubt a dumb sounding question, but I don't know how this works.
When you selected mysql as the default database, is this some kind of an 'internal mysql' version for RubyMine? When I externally jump to my version of mysql 5.0.77, none of the RubyMine mysql databases are visible. All of the RubyMine databases and code are working fine, in version 824. (Yes, I just downloaded the latest version and will try that).
How does this work? I'm trying to avoid learning everything about mysql, but have worked with databases for years. Can someone let me know the difference between a standard mysql setup, and the one that RubyMine provides?
