Does anyone have a guide/video on how to do mysql encryption, either at the table level or the full database?

    As far as I know there's no available technique to encrypt a full table or database.  See for a good technique on how to handle it on a per column basis.

    Oh, and may I suggest next time you post a question, you choose a more descriptive title? =)

    No it's not.  There are disadvantages of being free :-)
