Postby sagar002100 » 21. July 2008 06:55

hi..
I m beginner with php.I have installed xampp-win32-1.6.6a-installer.
and i m using Windows SP-2.
all things are running fine. (apache,MySQL).I also check a basic php script.There is no problem. But now i want to create database with mysql. For that,,mysql client side, i tried to open mysql.exe in my C:\xampp\mysql\bin folder.. When i do double click on that mysql.exe, i get a beep sound.and client program doesnt start.
please help.. or show me the way to create that database..

mysql.exe is a command-line utility. To use it, you need to run it from a command-prompt window. It's documented here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/ ... lient.html

But phpMyAdmin is easier to use: http://localhost/phpmyadmin/
