Learning about MySQL

Discussion in 'MySQL' started by uca, Aug 2, 2005.

    Where did you learn it all about MySQL databases?

    I need to hold my breath and learn more about them at this point but of course time is tight.

    I was wondering whether some kind DP member could point me in the right direction for an easy guide to MySQL databases...

    Thank you!

    I read Kofler's book, The Difinitive Guide to mySql, second edition (isbn 1590591445)

    It's the best resource I could find.

    Good luck

    Yeah, I always follow the "mysql select syntax" google routine, or whatever function I'm looking for. Works perfect every time :)

    check the mysql.info file that comes with your zip/tar distribution file. Everything is in there, and that's a lot. learn to search for examples , try them, and learn from them.

    Good luck!
