Hi,

 

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

 

www.sqlyog,com

 

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

 

mysql>

 

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

 

Read the manual for more information.
