FAQDesk

Recommended Posts

Ok, i went through all the installation steps for the FAQDesk contribution.

There was a file included that was called 'faqdesk.sql'

 

Load the supplied file 'faqdesk.sql' into your mySQL database, either

from the command line or via phpMyAdmin or whichever mySQL database assistance

script you use.

 

How do I load that file into my "mySQL" database?

Do you have phpmyadmin or a program for managing your database?? That is what you use to run that sql script

I do not have an area that is named anything close to that. Right now I just hack php w/ my Php Editor and save it to my hard drive backup, then load it to my website through 3D-FTP.

 

Is there a way to set up my database or get software to manage it?

 

(I'm a database newbie)

Ok a found a folder called "mysql_diff" w/ a file in it called "mysqldiff.pl"

 

the file has this text in it:

 

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

#

# mysqldiff

#

# Utility to compare table definitions in two MySQL databases,

# and output a patch in the format of ALTER TABLE statements

# which converts the first database structure into in the second.

#

# latest version.

if this is my database folder, then do i just load the file "faqdesk.sql" in that folder?

No.

 

The simplest thing to do would be to install phpMyAdmin. You should be able to install it through FTP and gain access to your database.

 

Hth,

Matt
