Introducing SQLyog, a MySQL Front End
December 18, 2002by Insanely Great
In this article, we will take a look at the basics of connecting to and using one of the most popular of these MySQL graphical interfaces, SQLyog. You can download the latest version at http://www.webyog.com/sqlyog/download.html.
The first thing you get after starting SQLyog is the connection detail window. Just give the details and press Connect.
After connecting to the MySQL server you will see the SQLyog main window.
The first logical step to do with SQLyog is to create a database. This you can do by selecting DB -> Create Database (Ctrl+D). Give the database name and press Create!
Working With SQLyog
The main window of SQLyog is divided into three panes -- Object Browser, SQL Window, Result Window.
The Object Browser gives you details of all the Database/Tables/Columns/Indexes available in the MySQL server. You can Show/Hide Object Browser and Result Window by pressing Ctrl+1 and Ctrl+2 respectively.
