Starting up our server and running the curl command curl localhost:3000/health, we find that we get an error. Our server is complaining about us not having a database. Since this is a fresh install, we have no data at all. SQL comes with a file called init.sql inside of your db folder that will create a database, add the necessary tables for our application, and prepopulate the table with a single entry. We just have to put it in the folder that MySQL will use to populate the database!
