<?php // Connects to your Database mysql_connect("your.hostaddress.com", "username", "password") or die(mysql_error()); mysql_select_db("Database_Name") or die(mysql_error()); mysql_query("CREATE TABLE tablename ( name VARCHAR(30), age INT, car VARCHAR(30))");
Print "Your table has been created"; ?>
I find this method is often used when installing a PHP program someone else has written. Often an install file includes a way for the user to update the MySQL database from the browser. This allows people less familiar with the code to install the program more easily.
