	// Connect to DB server

	$connection = mysql_connect(DB_HOST, DB_USER, DB_PASS);

	// Select database


	// Initialize query

	$query = "CREATE TABLE `ee_test`.`users` ("

	$query .= "  `username` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,"

	$query .= "  `password` VARCHAR(32) NOT NULL,"

	$query .= "  `fullname` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,"

	$query .= "  `country` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,"

	$query .= "  PRIMARY KEY (`username`)"

	$query .= ")"

	$query .= "ENGINE = InnoDB;"

	// Execute query

	mysql_query($query, $connection);

	// Insert something to our newly created table

	$query = "INSERT INTO `ee_test`.`users` VALUES('mvance', MD5(test), 'Matthias Vance', 'N/A');"

	mysql_query($query, $connection);
