simple mysql guide?

i just need a simple guide, and i already know MYSQLOO has a small guide but thats not enough

Mysql, not Sqlite

I learned here.

i can’t get it to connect propertly, i even tried with DarkRP with the latest revision but i just get weird errors as “Connection failed! [Database:12B17208]”

nvm, i solved it.

thanks anyways

Then you need a MySQLOO guide, not a MySQL guide.

Anyway; are all the parameters set-up correctly?
Are you trying to access a remote database (not local to the game server) and if so, did you allow your gameserver to connect to it (via RemoteSQL)?
Are you sure the port is not something besides the default port (3306)?
