Database set-up:

Members Table:

You're on your own for accessing the MySQL server.

The following statements usually work for creating databases and tables:

create database;
create table a (field1, field2, ..., key);

Download the MySQL manual (PDF) and peruse the syntax of the aforementioned statements. I taught myself MySQL by RTFMing, though I did have a slight head start by having learned Informix 15 years earlier, so SQL wasn't a completely foreign language.
