    Okay guys, here's the scenario:

    Our website recently outsourced its entire web development to another company, and the project was recently completed and hosted on our server.

    There is a fairly large MySQL database running behind the curtains with various tables (User, Adverts, Artistes etc.)

    Now, we want to add another table to this database. However I want to do this without messing up data in the database already, or messing up the database structure and schema if for instance what I add isn't correct.

    Is there some way I can ADD a table (we run phpMyAdmin to administer the MySQL DB), w/o effecting the other data in the database? Also, will relating and forming associations with primary keys from other tables be simple using phpMyAdmin?

    Would appreciate any help in this regard.

    Adding another table shouldn't bother anything in the database. Nor should dropping said table.
