Chapter 3. MySQL Basics

While the bulk of MySQL in a Nutshell contains reference information, which you can read in small segments as needed, this chapter presents a basic tutorial on MySQL. It explains how to log in to the MySQL server, create databases, and enter and manipulate data within them. This tutorial does not cover everything about MySQL. Instead, it’s more of a sampler; it’s meant to show you what’s possible and to get you thinking about how to approach tasks in MySQL.
