How to create a database with Mini SQL (mSQL)
by Developer's Daily

Creating a database with Mini SQL (mSQL) is very simple.  Let's assume that you want to create a new database named contact_mgr.  The command to create the new database is:

msqladmin create contact_mgr
This creates a directory named contact_mgr in your mSQL database directory.  The default directory for database's is /usr/local/Hughes/msqldb, so the entire path to the new directory is /usr/local/Hughes/msqldb/contact_mgr.

You are now ready to add new tables to the contact_mgr database.
