Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: MySQL newbie question

    MySQL newbie question

    I just started learning MySQL a little and i have a little question.

    Is it true that for my own website 1 database is enough?

    Just for everything like a guestbook and a shoutbox etc. i have to make another table? Is that correct or am i tottally wrong?

    Another one my server haves MySQL and thats the way i want to work now
    While learning i downloaded a flash guestbook for mySQL and the PHP script starts with:

    $DBhost = "localhost"; // Database Server
    $DBuser = "root"; // Database User
    $DBpass = ""; // Database Pass
    $DBName = "turorials"; // Database Name
    $table = "guestbook"; // Database Table

    what do i have to fill in if i have an external mySQL browser? The name of my website which is combined with my MySQL database?

    Thank you

    not quite sure what you are asking at the bottom. But one database is usually more then enough for a single site. you would undoubtable have a lot of tables but all in a single database.
