http://www.mysql.com/documentation/ The MySQL docs are very good. There's a whole how-to section for installing and configuring mysql. Also contains a nice tutorial of SQL with mysql. Also, check out: http://databases.about.com/ There's a link there for "SQL Basics" with a number of good articles. Also has a section devoted to mysql. Here's an article about open database protocols including a discussion of the history of SQL, a simple "English like language" for getting and putting data which has become a tower of Babel through willy nilly enhancement. http://www.webreview2.com/dd/1999/11_19_99.shtml -jeff

Hello Chris, I have MySql running on my RedHat 7 box. It did take a while to get it figured out. The best resource is to get on the MySql list at www.mysql.com all the questions I had were answered there, just by doing a search on the archives of the list. The main thing is once you have MySql installed on the system is to make sure you have the file permissions correct, make sure that you can execute the program. Sometimes you can run it as root but no other... Other than that the main thing is that the name and password system for MySql is separate from the system name and password. http://www.mysql.com/documentation/mysql/bychapter/manual_Tutorial.html#Tutorial I found this tutorial invaluable to my learning of MySql. Peruse the docs http://www.mysql.com/documentation/mysql/bychapter/manual_Installing.html#Installing This should get you started. Bill. Chris wrote:
