    Problem w/ MySQL Installation

    I'm sort of a MySQL newbie here and am trying to use it again for the first time in about four years. And four years ago was the only other time I had used it before this.

    Trying to create a database from the mysql command line window so I enter:
    Code:
    CREATE DATABASE pup
    and it doesn't return an error message but when I then do

    Code:
    USE pup
    it says "Unknown database." Is there something I'm doing wrong here?

    when you create the database you should see:
    query okay, 1 row affected
    if you don't see that then the database was not created.
