Starting to Create Database and Table in MySQL

Let’s create a database using MySQL command line (I prefer this instead of GUI since we will practice our SQL syntax more)

1. to create database names “smsegov”:


to check whether we have succeeded to create this database or not


2. To use a particular database (‘smsegov’)

use smsegov;

use command is used when you have more than one database on a MySQL server and need to switch between them.

3. Now, create the table names ‘survey1’

CREATE TABLE survey1 (

id int auto_increment,

sex text


To close MySQL command line, type QUIT
