Suggestion: Use mySQL script for installation

    During the installation of MyDNSConfig the user is asked to type in mySQL commands to add records to the mydns.soa and mydns.rr tables as well as to create a table for MyDNSConfig's exclusive use. Instead of asking the user to type in these commands you can instead have the user execute a mySQL script to run these commands for them. This way the user has less work to do and is less likely to make a mistake creating the records and table.

    For example I have attached a mySQL script file based on the MyDNSConfig installation instructions. To run this script you would save it as "mydnsconfig.sql" then connect to mysql as root and run the command "source /path/mydnsconfig.sql".

    Thanks for the excellent interface I look forward to the improvements to come!
