I've recently installed OpenSA on my computer (win98) to preview my PHP pages. However, I want to go the full distance and emulate exact usage of the site, which means installing MySQL. How do I do this?

Told ya so Mike :p

Download MySQL http://www.mysql.com

Install it.

It's not huge, just do a search. It comes with a fair amount of docs to pour through, and I do advise reading up what comes with it before you start fiddling with it -which you will :)

a good book on the subject i can suggest is:

Build Your Own
Database Driven Website
Using PHP & MySQL (http://sitepoint.com/books/?bookid=PHPMYSQL02) - by Kevin Yank of sitepoint.com (http://sitepoint.com/), it was invaluable when i started out, and is pretty much THE entry level book to read on the subject.
you can download the first four chapters from their site (very good chapters, also includes the 'setting up php/mysql' chapters ;)), or you can just have a look at your local library if you haven't already

grtz sal.

Ahem... define 'Huge'. To me, 13MB on a 56K is pretty big.

Oh well... I guess I'll have to leave the modem running while I watch Pride and Prejudice.

yep, im actually nearly finished a 13MB download i started at lunchtime ?:|

lol, P&P, a bit before my time, but maybe you dont need to download it, it isnt 13MB good (i only read the book back then), so maybe online tutorials would do the job :D, they do the trick for me, well, in the interim, while you dont have THE book

13Mb is pretty much average these days for 56K. I download up to 120Mb over 56k, any more and it's me uncles' high speed for me :D

Over the last 6 months I have totalled way over 2 CDs worth of downloads :^O and a lot of them over 100Mb
