Database Setup

The first thing you need to do is create the database structure. This can be accomplished using a GUI like phpMyAdmin, WebMin or from the shell account as follows:

MySQL Database/Table Creation Script
CREATE DATABASE mydatabase;
USE mydatabase;
CREATE TABLE keyword_data (
    id int(11) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL auto_increment,
    keywords varchar(120),
    question varchar(240),
    answer text,
    PRIMARY KEY (id)
);

Note: You need not create a new database, you can use an existing one.

Now we want to insert some test data, it will come in handy later while testing the Flash. I've provided for a few possibilities with the data below.
MySQL Database Insert Script
INSERT INTO keyword_data (keywords, question, answer) VALUES 
('contact reach phone address','How may we contact you?','Smoke signals are the best way to get a hold of us.');
INSERT INTO keyword_data (keywords, question, answer) VALUES 
('music mp3','Can I download your mp3s?','Yes, while you will have to sacrifice your first born child though.');
INSERT INTO keyword_data (keywords, question, answer) VALUES 
('phone toll free number','Do you have a toll free number?','Yes.');

Note: I suggest you insert just a few records right now, just in case you can't get the scripts working.
