Hello all, I am hoping that someone can advise me how to create a database in SQL. I am learning from a book called 'Dreamweaver MX 2004 with asp, coldfusion and php' by Jeffrey Bardzell. Having lost lots of hair trying to get php 5.. to open the SQL dll libraries, I came across XAMPP which appears to have set it up all for me. Although this book provides the database sql file, I need to get it into SQL to generate the tables etc - but I don't know how to!. The book tells me to execute mysql.exe, type 'source c:\relevantFolders\theDatabase.sql' and enter. Trouble is, the screen disappears before I do any typing (the book is using PHP 4.?.? so it is probably out of date).
Please tell me how to do it so that I can continue to learn!
