Hey, i am trying to get MySQL to work on my computer at home. I already have php working, but im not even sure where to start with MySQL, so if anyone could point me in the right direction that would be awesome.

You havent told about the OS you use. If you are using windows downlaod the SQLYOG which is a GUI based tool.


To start the mysql

go to c:mysqlbinwinmysqladmin.exe

You will see the srevice running in the task bar.

You can also go to the command prompt and do this

c:> cd mysqlbin

c:> mysql -u root


Once you are in the mysql prompt you can try the queries.

Read the manual for more information.
