I guess I am too much a beginner for this. I can't find the tables that are referred to in the Copying the Script section and the user table referred to in the Using MySQL Query Browser section. The only provided sql file I found is for contenthistory and contents.

CREATE TABLE `contenthistory` (
`HistoryID` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
`HistoryContentID` int(11) default NULL,
`HistoryValue` text,
`HistoryGroup` varchar(50) default NULL,
`HistoryReference` varchar(50) default NULL,
`HistoryDate` timestamp NOT NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
PRIMARY KEY (`HistoryID`)
);


CREATE TABLE `contents` (
`ContentID` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
`ContentGroup` varchar(50) default NULL,
`ContentRefID` varchar(50) default NULL,
`ContentValue` text,
`ContentDate` timestamp NOT NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
PRIMARY KEY (`ContentID`)
);

The PowerCMS SQL file does not contain a Users table.


The tutorial:
importing_sql.pdf


is a general tutorial for all of the Solution Packs, Some of the Solution Packs, like Power CMS Will not contain a users table, but the steps in the tutorial are still valid. the SQL you posted above is the correct SQL to create the needed table for PowerCMS

So the instructions that come with the Power CMS don't need user tables, is this correct? Why do the instructions show a screen shot of a user table in the Using MySQL Query Browser and an unknow table in the screen shot under Using phpMyAdmin section Executing the script?

The instructions for copying the SQL into the Query Browser are general instructions, they not specific to the PowerCMS Solution pack. The same instructions can be used if you are using PowerStore or the User Registration solution pack.

But my question has to do with the only sql file included with PowerCMS. Every time the instructions say "navigate to the .sql file you intend to import to your database", do we use this file?

Importing the PowerCMS .SQL file

Hopefully i can clarify things for you a little..

PowerCMS comes with one .SQL file, which contains all the database tables you need for PowerCMS to function. This file can be found in the Database folder, named CMS.sql.

As part of the process for setting up PowerCMS, you need to import that file (or it's contents) into an existing MySQL database. I believe you have already found the How To which instructs users on how they can import any .SQL file into a database.

As already mentioned, this is a generic tutorial, and does not relate specifically to PowerCMS. Therefore, if the screenshots don't show the exact same tables - that is fine. Since the steps are exactly the same, we avoid "reinventing the wheel" by using this generic tutorial.

Thanks, those are the ones I imported. It is just a little confusing when the examples show other tables. It may be worth the few minutes it would take to have a specific tutorial since you don't offer a video tutorial. Those have been very helpful in the past. I think this will probably be my last webassist product. There use to be good video tutorials and I could call occasionally and speak with a live person. This seems like it shouldn't be that had but I seem to be missing a key piece of information and it is turning into a big headache.
