I am new to mysql, using windows 98. Using MS-DOS I have been able to access the localhost test database but cannot create a new database.
I entered the following line and received the error message.
"mysql> create database newone;
to database 'newone'"
I was able to access the test db, creat a chart, but could not new add records.
I downloaded a tutorial with create sql files. They would not run because of "bad command or file name.

Have you given the user you signed in as the proper privileges to create databases?
