1) I downloaded WebAssists "free ecommerce MySQL database" which is wa_ecommerce_20091112.sql
2) I copied the text from this file and pasted it as indicated.
3) I press the 'go' button
This results in:
CREATE TABLE `optiongroups` (
`OptionGroupID` INT( 11 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
`OptionGroupName` VARCHAR( 50 ) DEFAULT NULL ,
PRIMARY KEY ( `OptionGroupID` )
#1046 - No database selected
This of course I do not understand.
You have to create a database which will show up in the left column of the phpMyAdmin. Click on the databases tab and add a database. Then click on the database you created on the left. Then run the query.
