if not the root folder, where should I put my .sql files? Also how can I tell PHP to look in that location and communicate with my database?

(Maybe more reading in a PHP/MySQL book...)
How does one import to the MySQL server?
MegaChriz wrote:For importing SQL-commands in MySQL I recommend to use phpMyAdmin.
1. Start XAMPP.
2. Go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin in your browser.
3. On the left of the screen a list of databases appears. Select a database.
4. A list of tables appears. On the top of the screen you see a tabbed menu with 'Structure', 'SQL', 'Search' and some other. If you click on 'SQL' you can just type your sql-commands there and execute them. If you click on 'Import', you can import a sql-file to execute.
Great thing about phpMyAdmin is that if the SQL-command is'nt quite right, you see an error message of phpMyAdmin after you've tried to execute the SQL-command.
Hope that this helps you.
