    Thanks for the last 2 post, they were very fortelling by far.
    I already had XAMPP downloaded on my computer, I had forgotten to install it.

    Server status with XAMPP "MySQL Module" disabled:

    Enabling MySQL Module in XAMPP resulted in 2 error messages:, Code 1049:

    If one could tell how to disable the "Fast reply" box at the bottom of each thread it would be grateful. It fails to send my post, and redirects me to the main forum page. Been having this problem for years.

    XAMPP "Shell" is able to recognize "mysql commands".

    I agree with Aston, as you can't go wrong with command line knowledge. You can try this Tutorial which will give you a quick run-through of the program. I think the bookworm around here is probably modi123_1, and perhaps if he sees this post, he might recommend you a good book on database interactions. I don't think you will find any books on Workbench, and the most you can hope for is their Docs and tutorials on YouTube.

    I'd rather stick with Workbench 6.1.

    I looked at that you tube video. I tried setting up a server named "host1" using the localhost ip address, set a simple password. The bottom left corner reads:

    "Name:  host1
    Port: 3306

    How do I establish a connection?

    host1 settings:

    My main goal here is to be execute options commands, in mysql CLI utility.

    SHOW databases;

    and see what happens. are you using a LAMP/ WAMP stack currently?

    I got an "unknown command: SHOW databases;"

    I'm unaware of what LAMP / WAMP stack is.

    I installed the utility on my desktop which I have administrative access on (Windows 7).

    WHere can I get a functioning mysql command line program?

    The one I'm using (MySQL utilities Console) states:

    Launching console ...

    mysqluc> mysql --helpThe utility mysql is not accessible (from the path: C:\Prog
    ram Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Utilities).

    The same message displays when I type "mysql-- version"

    I've decided to start reading Dubois's "My SQL 5" instead, which places more emphasis on certificate preparation.

    He brings the up "World database" supplied on Oracle's website. What program should I primarily use to open and read it? : "world database (MyISAM version, used in MySQL certifications and training)"

    If one may direct me to books dealing with creating MySQL databases with Workbench 6 (preferable 6.1), it would appreciated. I have taken C++, so programming isn't entirely new to me.

    Eventually I'd like to study PHP from then on.
