    Newbie to mysql, need some help

    I am just trying to get this sucka running solid on my Windows XP Pro machine. I usually use MYSQL FRONT, but I have been going through the command line because whenever I go through mysql front and try to connect using

    host: localhost
    user: root
    password: my password

    It allows me to connect, but when I try to add a database that is other then the word test or test2, it won't work.

    I also get confused by all the different mysqld's in my bin folder.

    Reason I want to get mysql up and running is so I can have a local copy of movable type running. I have activeperl installed and it works, and I installed the mysql db for active perl, I just need mysql to get up and running.

    Can anyone help. Thanks

    If you are using php, you might consider installing phpMyAdmin to easly create and manage your databases.
