    USING MYSQL - first time user in debian


    I have used wamp server previously on wondows xp to make php. Now I am trying php on debian. I have managed to get system to recognise php files. Now I want to set up a database

    How would i go about this. I have something called mysql administrator. How do I open it. It gives me

    server hostname
    username
    password

    I tried using a terminal to set up mysql from something that I got from the internet. I set up the password. The next bit failed though. I am just a bit lost

    as a debian user, this will be very easy.
    Code:
    #apt-get install phpmyadmin
    once its finished reboot apache and open a webrowser to http://yourip/phpmyadmin

    depending on how you install mysql and what you have done will determine logon info. default mysql in debian install is root with no password.
