How did you create your table if you're not able to connect to the
server? Or do you mean you have your data in some representation
external to MySQL and that you'd like to create a MySQL database,
create a table in that database, and load your table into it? I'm
just guessing that's what you mean, because your questions aren't
very specific and so they aren't easy to answer.
It sounds like you need to find out what user name and password to
specify in your DBI script so that you can connect to the MySQL
server. That's something your MySQL administrator will have to
tell you. Or are you the administrator?
Once you can connect, check chapter 7 of the MySQL Reference manual
and read the sections describing CREATE DATABASE, CREATE TABLE, and
INSERT or LOAD DATA...
