    Unanswered: Basic instructions on how to use mysql

    Have just loaded an old version of mysql from a Debian Potato CD and think it is working: although computer says:
    Starting mysql server .... failed
    it does give a message and a prompt when I do:
    mysql

    Can't really get much further. Though did get it to make a database called 'database' though it's empty.

    Is there a link to some basic information about what I'm supposed to do?

    Sorry such a cretinous question but when you're this ignorant its difficult not to be.

    Thanks any help.

    The MySQL reference manual has a tutorial section that's pretty good.
