    how to start to mySQL? basic question

    Hi guys

    think this is gonna be a really silly question. I just installed mySQL and it seems to work fine (traffic light is green) but I dont know how to actually connect to it?! so i can create tables etc

    any help would be great!!

    Thanks

    It's not that obvious!

    Using the command line interface (mysql -u root -p) or installing phpMyAdmin are both popular choices.

    Read up on setting a root password, if you have not already.

    if you have it installed on windows
    there is a command prompt available from programs / fairly easy to do
    good luck
