Newbie questions

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am fairly new to mysql and databases in general. So far I have installed mysql and made a couple of tables ect. I have the following questions:

 

1. Do most people use a graphical front end when designing their data bases or do they use the console? If graphical, which one? I am thinking of buying Navicat. Would this be the best one?

 

2. I am designing my data base locally and dont have a host yet. When i do get a host that supports mysql, is it just a matter of uploading my table files or do i have to start a new database on the server and somehow import my tables?

 

3. What are the best online tutorials or offline books to learn how to become a good db programmer?

 

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks :)

onemind,

 

I am trying to figure out the best way of putting my db onto the server. If I find out anythign I will let you know.

 

The best GUI tool I have come across so far is:

http://www.webyog.com/sqlyog/featurematrix.html

 

This makes using mySQL a breeze, there is a free version and an enterprise version.

 

Check it out.
