Subject:RE: creating tables from the shell
View as plain text  
ok it looks like your funneling whatever query you have in create_member.sql
into mysql and executing it on the samp_db database.  From your filename I'm
assuming that you have a "create table" query within create_member.sql.  Is
the table not being created within samp_db?

Try this:
./bin/mysql samp_db
show tables;

and see if this doesn't output the member table that you are trying to
create from withing the .sql file.
