Hi,
I encounter an error when creating tables with PRIMARY KEY. The error is as fallows:
"Data base created succesfulyYou have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'KEY (movie_id), KEY movie_type (movie_type,movie_year) ) TYPE"
My current mysql version is 4.0.21
Any Ideas?
Thank's

Hi

What are you using to creat your table? PHPMyAdmin or some kind?
If you would like to create a table with PRIMARY key, it need to have syntax like this.....

CREATE TABLE `movie` (
`movie_id` INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
`movie_type` VARCHAR( 100 ) NOT NULL ,
PRIMARY KEY ( `movie_id` )
);

Hope this help...

It may be easier to install and use a mySQL utility, I would suggest either mySQL Control Center (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/other/mysqlcc.html) or mySQL Query Browser (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/query-browser/index.hml)

Also, double check your syntax for your CREATE TABLE command:

Thank's for responding,
The code is as follows:
$movie="CREATE TABLE movie (
movie_id INT(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
movie_name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
movie_type TINYINT(2) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
movie_year INT(4) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
movie_leadactor INT(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
movie_director INT(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
PRIMERY KEY (movie_id),
KEY movie_type (movie_type,movie_year)
) TYPE=MyISAM AUTO_INCREMENT=4 ";

I am learing MySQL from book "Beginning PHP,Apache,MySQL Web development" and I am at beging of chapter that covers MySQL topic. Through google in another forum i found some one else using the same book and having exaclty the same problem in the same code. She never posted, how she did solve it. That make's me thing that there is some typo or syntex mistake which i, as begginer, do not see. It is certanly some thing to do with line [KEY movie_type....] I went trought the manual that NeonDevil listed, but everything seems correct.
Thank's

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Hi

I found the error, there is a typo with the word PRIMERY >> it should be PRIMARY, it works fine, i test it...

Here is the correct syntax:

CREATE TABLE movie(
movie_id INT( 11 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
movie_name VARCHAR( 255 ) NOT NULL ,
movie_type TINYINT( 2 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
movie_year INT( 4 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
movie_leadactor INT( 11 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
movie_director INT( 11 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
PRIMARY KEY ( movie_id ) ,
KEY movie_type( movie_type, movie_year )
) TYPE = MYISAM AUTO_INCREMENT =4
