Hello, I'm trying to import some tables already created by Phpmyadmin and also the content of the tables but I don't know how to do that. Tutorials couldn't help me to understand everything.

AS far as I know, if I add the next code in /mysite/code/Station.php, it should create automatically a Database when running /dev/build?flush=1, but it stops at some point while its creating the tables


class Project extends DataObject{

private static $db = array(
"ame_station" => "Varchar",
"changue_stations" => "Varchar",
"distance" => "Varchar"

Why is it not working?
I just started with silverstripe... And I would like to know which options I have to import those tables, maybe first I have create the properly classes and then make SQL sentences to Insert into the tables(?),. If u don't mind please, make simple explanations becouse I'm quite lost. Thank you so much.

You should get an error message to your page which explains what's wrong. If you don't get an error message, make sure you're in dev mode.
