First time user here of HeidiSQL, v9.3
I have searched around however cannot seem to find info on this very basic question I know, however would appreciate some help to get started please.
a) I have mySQL installed locally and also Workbench 6.3 I would like to use HeidiSQL to replace my use of mySQL if that makes sense to do so as I have read that Heidi is a pretty good solution.
I have done a "Create" of a database in Heidi however I cannot find - "Tools-> Load SQL file" as I have read elsewhere.
How do I import a mySQL DB into Heidi ?
b) alternatively on reading a few posts, I get the impression I can just "connect" to an existing mySQL DB using Heidi rather importing - is that so ? If so how so, (a link on how to would be fine)
c) say I am using predominantly Wordpress apps, do I need to alter anything in there specifically to have them use HeidiSQL ?
I am happy to read links and try to work through this, I just don't know where to start at the moment.
thanks in advance
