Default Create db


This is what my error-message is "4 5.1.44Zm7f}e_-ÿ÷_w[Aq7ZC}o6]ÿ„Got packets out of order".

My localhost port-number is :8888 when running scripts, but as far as I can see it is :8889 when it comes to MySql. The connection goes well, but the creation of the db is not so well.

How (in what file) do I change to :8888 for MySql if that is the solution?

This is what I have got:


//Koble til databasen
	$connect = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "root") or
		die("Sjekk databaseoppkoblingen!");

//lager hoveddatabasen
	$create = mysql_query("CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS moviesite") or

But when I did some change to the hole script and reduced the number of tables to be created (and // eliminate one line!), left out the creation of a new db, then it went ok... Please take a look and comment;

//Tilkobling og valg av database

$connection = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "root");
mysql_select_db("some_db", $connection);

//Sette en sql-spørring mot db

//Lage movie-tabellen
$movie = "CREATE TABLE movie (";
$movie .= " movie_id int ( 11 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,";
$movie .= " movie_name VARCHAR ( 255 ) NOT NULL,";
$movie .= " movie_type TINYINT ( 2 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,";
$movie .= " movie_year INT ( 4 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,";
$movie .= " movie_leadactor INT ( 11 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,";
$movie .= " movie_director INT ( 11 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,";
//$movie .= " KEY movie_type (movie_type, movie year);
$movie .= ")";

mysql_query($movie, $connection);
echo $movie;
But I am not quite shure about what changes which are in place in order to make it work?! Has this to do with the version-no of my PHP? And also: what is this line ment to do?

//$movie .= " KEY movie_type (movie_type, movie year);

Establish a relation between to tables? How can I solve this now if that is the case?

Hmmm... it seems that some of the solution (with my MySql ver 5.1.44) are:

$create = mysql_query("CREATE DATABASE moviesite") or

//The "IF NOT EXISTS" is left out and the line which was commented out previously was missing the ,"; at the end! Puuuhh!

$movie .= " KEY movie_type (movie_type, movie year),";
Internet has become favorable with that tool...thank you Tim Berners-Lee!
