I'm a newbie for linux, I run win2k as my o/s and have Suse 8.2 Professional running in VMware as a webserver so I can experiment in coding PHP without paying for a host or uninstalling my localhost which I need for ASP.
My friend set it all up for me and he did it without installing mySQL... he's now gone off on holiday for a few weeks and i'm stuck! He left it in command line mode so I have no graphical interface.
Here's my question:
Can someone either guide me through installing mySQL in command line.... OR ....if that's a difficult way around (esp. considering im a newbie) can you first guide me through changing to a graphical desktop layout and then installing mySQL??
1. I have the orginal DVD installation disc I just don't know where to start!
2. The webserver runs fine for most PHP code at the moment, just I can't do anything with db's.
Thanks guys.... tobz
