If you are going to use it for making websites I suggest you learn PHP (or some other server side language) first because you can't do much with MySQL alone.
w3schools.com is the best place for beginner to learn either PHP or MySQL.
Hope this helps.
I have used this Mysql tutorial .
It easy to use and I like it a lot.
I totally agree. Normally you can't live with just MySQL alone as it needs server side language to be able to use..
Hi I think this should have been posted on the php mysql thread. anyway mysql is different from html but you can still somehow benefit in code structuring but for the whole run, skill you need won't affect much. But of course you would still need some programming knowledge especially when you're making stored procedures
Looks good thx
To properly understand SQL is helps to understand the concept of relational databases.
Nevertheless, once you are ready to try out your first SQL code SQLFiddle ( http://sqlfiddle.com/#!2/a2581/1 ) is a great site to define a database schema on the fly and then throw your queries against it.
