Hi, again. Thanks for the guidance about using cpanel! Here's a more specific question, because for one reason or another I just can't figure it out. I created a database and gained access to the database. Then I created a simple 2 field table. I named the fields...chose "text" as the type, and made one of them the index field. Then when I try to save the table, it gives me an error that I haven't set the length for the index field (that's not verbatim). When I type a number into the length box, it gives me a syntax error. SOOOOOOOOOO...is there some easier way to do this that I haven't figured out? I've looked at quite a bit of the help information and I've learned some things. But I can't find any info. to help me with the table building.
AND...once I get this blamed table created and saved...do I use phpadmin to enter all the data?
Sorry for all the novice questions...I will get a book soon. But, in the meantime I will take any info/help I can get! When it comes to web design I'm a self-taught creature. I'm doing pretty good so far, but this MySQL, Perl, PHP, phpAdmin, database monster has stumped me.
