MySQL & Scripts - Need help!

3 posts in this topic

So I've recently set up my exile server through a dedicated host, however I'm having trouble finding any files to actually configure. I'd like to be able to change how much money you start with and add a few scripts. I have no idea what MySQL is or what its used for, I'd just like to know what it does, how to use it and how to add scripts.

Thanks

MySQL is a database software. For details ask wikipedia. Basically you have 2 ways to admin the database: Command line or tools like mysql workbench or phpmyadmin. Usually there is no need to work with the database directly except the start money. For this a ALTER TABLE command is required (serach the forum for ALTER TABLE and you should find it). And think about backing up your database frequently. I am exporting the exile db on every restart and it saved my ass already several times.

Scripts has nothing to do with the database. Usually you will find installation instruction in the script-archives. So: RTFM ;)

regards

Thank you very much!

So if I'm using a command line, I wont need MySQL? (With the exception of changing the starting money)
