Hello, with php i have an average knowledge but I have never got to a point connecting to mySQL and adding and removing a record. i have tried but have ended up getting confused... I understand SQL.. but i just don't get setting up a database and then connecting it using PHP and my mySQL

is it possible someone could give me a simple explanation of how to set a mySQL database setup, login, add a record, and remove a record.. ?? im good at asp can connect to access easily and change data.. but i really want to get to grips with it using PHP and mySQL...

many thanks chris
