    mySQL administration

    Hi, I've installed mysql 3.23 and just have a couple of questions:

    1. I would like to be able to type my code directly into mysqld-nt instead of via start > accessories > command prompt. I've placed a shortcut on my desktop to mysqld-nt in the bin directory, but when I open up mysqld-nt I'm not able to enter any information in the window.

    Yes, I have installed mysqld-nt as the MySQL server version

    2. I want mySQL administration to begin running as soon as my computer boots up. Right now, I have to open it via the shortcut on the desktop to start the interface. Any suggestions.

    Thanks Last Radius

    For (2), put a shortcut to it in the 'Startup' folder on the start menu for all users.

    As for (1), why don't you use something like phpMyAdmin? It's sooo much easier and you can just throw raw SQL strings at it if you like.

    www.phpmyadmin.net

    Yeah, phpMyAdmin will give you an interface. mysqld-nt is a service, it is not an actual application. You cannot interact with it directly without commandline unless you use phpMyAdmin or MySQL-Front...or similar.
