Posted on 27 January 2004 07:38 PM
Question:

I am brand new to MySQL and need a starting point. Where can I find a tutorial that will help me at this stage?

Answer:

Sources of documentation and tutorials can be found on the MySQL site:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/

For example, a "getting started" tutorial on MySQL 5.1 can be found at:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/tutorial.html

Here is another article on the basics of MySQL which also covers using it with PHP:
http://www.w3schools.com/PHP/php_mysql_intro.asp

Note: Most of the step-by-step beginner tutorials will have you start by creating your MySQL database. You'll need to do this within your CNC MySQL Manager:
