I created an SQL database using the cPanel wizard. What tools are around to populate it with data?

The database is to be accessed by the Wordpress addon CART66 for an art gallery site.

Hi bej,

If you're looking to work with a MySQL database once it has been created, you can use phpMyAdmin. phpMyAdmin is a point and click method to manage a database (a MySQL GUI, much easier to use than running raw SQL statements). We have a general guide here for <a href='' target='_blank'>managing a database using phpMyAdmin</a>.

I don't believe I understand your question 100% however. When you referrer to populating the database, are you referring to putting in sample data, or are you actually trying to setup the shopping cart?

If you can post a comment at the bottom of this page with a few more details on what exactly it is you're doing, I'm more than happy to look into this further and try to point you in the right direction.
