MySQL is an open source database management software that helps users store, organize, and retrieve data. It is a very powerful DBMS with a lot of flexibility
quickinstallation of MySQL server
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
Once you have MySQL installed on your droplet, you can access the MySQL shell by typing the following command into terminal:
mysql -u root -p
All MySQL commands end with a semicolon; if the phrase does not end with a semicolon, the command will not execute.

You can quickly check what databases are available by typing:
Creating a database is very easy:
CREATE DATABASE database name;
You would delete a MySQL database with this command:
DROP DATABASE database name;

Let’s open up the database we want to use:
 USE databasename;
you can also see an overview of the tables that the database contains.
 SHOW tables; 

Let’s create a new MySQL table:

name VARCHAR(20),

food VARCHAR(30),

confirmed CHAR(1), 

signup_date DATE);
We can remind ourselves about the table’s organization with this command:
 DESCRIBE potluck;
Use this format to insert information into each row:
`potluck` (`id`,`name`,`food`,`confirmed`,`signup_date`) VALUES
(NULL, "John", "Casserole","Y",
We can take a look at our table:
 SELECT * FROM potluck;
we can update some data
UPDATE `potluck` 


`confirmed` = 'Y' 

`potluck`.`name` ='Sandy';
 Modifying tables

ALTER TABLE potluck ADD email VARCHAR(40);
ALTER TABLE potluck ADD email VARCHAR(40)
AFTER name; 
ALTER TABLE potluck DROP email;

you can also delete rows from the table with the following command:
DELETE from [table name] where [column name]=[field text];
DELETE from potluck  where name='Sandy';

exiting from mysql

type the command      exit

Important Directories
/bin                            holds the “essential” Linux commands and utilities /boot                          holds files required for boot process (kernel, vmlinuz, grub) /dev                            holds device files (hard drive, USB, CD-ROM, etc.) /etc                             holds system configuration files /etc/init.d                    holds scripts to start/stop network services /etc/rc.d                     holds system startup/shutdown scripts /etc/X11                      holds configuration files for X-windows /home                        holds user home directories (except for the root account) /lib                               holds system/shared library files /lost+found                holds files restored after system crash /mnt                            used as temporary mount point for CD-ROM, floppy, etc. /opt                              typically where large software applications are installed /proc                           holds kerne…

ER Diagrams to Table

REDUCING E-R DIAGRAM TO TABLE - A database which conforms to an E R diagram can be represented by collection of tables .For each entity set and for each relationship set in the database, we will create unique tables, which is assigned the name of the corresponding entity set or relationship sets . Each table has a no. of columns which have unique names. Each row in the table corresponds to an entity or a relationship.

REPRESENTATION OF STRONG ENTITY SET -Let E be a strong entity set with descriptive attributes a1, a2....aN . We represent this entity by table called E with N distinct columns, each of which corresponds to one of the attributes of E.

REPRESENTATION OF RELATIONSHIP SET - Let R be a relation ship set involving entity set E1,E2....En Let attribute(R) consists of 'm' attributes We can represent this relation ship set by a table called R with m distinct columns, each of which corresponds to one of the attributes in attribute (R) plus the primary key of E1..En.
