View Full Version : How to set up MySql

09-23-2006, 12:25 PM
I have a MySql on the hosting service I have, I just don't have a database manager (I think that's what it's called). I'm not really sure what I need here, so if someone could explain a little bit more about this I would gladly appreciate it. By the way, I'm doing this with PHP.

Thanks in advance

search for phpmyadmin...?
Not sure what you're asking.

And, if you are starting out with setting up mysql, wouldn't know how to help, sorry.

I have a MySql on the hosting service I have, I just don't have a database managerThere is no "database manager." Users, databases and tables can be created with the same type of query used to work with data. Various interfaces (such as phpMyAdmin) are available, but these tend to oversimplify things, and offer no real benefit to the experienced user. When one installs MySQL, a simple command-line program is provided (mysql or mysql.exe) which allows one to connect to a database server and issue queries in real-time. This is all that's needed for everyday database administration, although some other tools such as mysqldump (also provided) may be useful.

I downloaded the pack and found that (mysql.exe). Thanks Twey, I'll try to figure it out.

If you want something like a MySQL database manager, AppServ is what you need! http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/appserv/appserv-win32-2.0.0.exe?download

Hope I helped!!

Dunno if this is what you want or not but give EMS Mysql Manager...

I use that. Havn't had any problems and works well to manage multiple servers..
