OK, so I am new to many things, including MySQL, and the application MySQL Workbench. I can ask around, but I think this would be the best place to put the question forward -
I see this on the WriteFreely install page:
CREATE DATABASE writefreely CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci;
And I went ahead and (possibly made a noob of myself) and copy/pasted that line of text into the “editor”, or what have you, in MySQL Workbench. Previous to that, I downloaded the WriteFreely file for the OS I intend to use (Linode VPS running Ubuntu) and extracted the files locally on my MacBook (assuming the software will run on Ubuntu on my VPS, so I should be downloading the Linux option, instead of macOS, yes?).
And here is where I am getting hung up - I run
writefreely config start (which is probably getting way ahead of myself), and it simply shows a red “X” to the left of the command, as if to say “this won’t work”, or whatever.
Again, I am BRAND NEW to both MySQL, and MySQL workbench, and not 100% where I’m at here.
Any helps is appreciated. Thank you in advance
