how do i make a simple sql table?...i have an sql from PHPMyAdmin if anyone is familiar with that. I downloaded mysql 4 or so as i was following this tutorial...and the stuff they start saying after the installation made no sense...
There is a bunch of SQL databases type. Saying SQL is different. PhpMyAdmin uses MySQL. You should check to make sure your web host doesn't already have MySQL. If they don't they will need to install it for you, unless you have access to the root, which is most causes you will not. If you do have access, make sure you server meets the requirements from MySQL. Then using the commands you can install it on your web server.
