Hello,

Please forget me if I am asking something that is well documented. I have read documentation but there are points that are not clear for me. I am not expert in R nor Databases, but if someone direct me to a tutorial, I will appreciate it..

  1. In my understanding, I can install and use RMySQL withouth having to install MySQL in my PC, to have access to and to create new tables . Is this right?
  2. I have created a c:\my.cnf file to access a database I have, but withouth installing the server, where I can define the user, password and host to establish a connection?

Thanks in advance
