Most applications that make use of databases come with a mysql file that sets up the tables for you. Usually these files have a .sql tag. Using such files with phpmyadmin is as easy as copying and pasting the text into the large query box and clicking go.
You can also use phpmyadmin to manually set up tables, view, add, edit or remove entries.
SECURITY NOTE: It is very important that you protect the folder where you have installed phpmyadmin. If you don't, anyone who thinks to type that in the URL will have access to your database. Check with your host/control panel about how to password protect a folder.
Please use this tutorial as a guide and direct appropriate questions to the right places. For example, if phpmyadmin doesn't work, the lads at sourceforge will be happy to help. If you aren't sure whether your host supports MySQL databases, I don't know either. However, I will also try to answer questions posted on the forum at INDIVISION. Good luck and I hope this helps.
