How do I use MySQL?


MySQL allows you to store, organize and access information in a relational database.  This database can be accessed using a variety of clients.  Once the account is created, you are given one, and only one database to use.  The name of the database will be your username.  You can create new tables within that database, but you are unable to create new databases.
