Well I just got my domain and they offer a great bag of goodies for free. There is some options to add a MySQL database. I have been to the SQL site and got some standard info on MySQL it'self, but not really on what it can do really. I mean my domain has an option to add the database .. so I clicked it .. and well nothing has really changed and I don't really anyway to modify it like the SQL site said.. so I'm wondering if what I am being offered is something diffent. Are they just going to keep a database on my site or what?

Dark: I assume that clicking on the link started the process of setting up your DB (as it sounds like it didn't come set up by default). I suspect you should get an email in a few days telling you about the DB details (you may need to consult your host to find out what is actually going on). Then pop over here and read their tutorials:

[edit: Thanks for the extra info - it looks like it is all up and running. phpMyAdmin will be a great help in constructing your tables.]

Dark: Thanks for the screenshot. You can now avoid the bits of the tutorials which demonstarte how to connect to your DB and create tables by hand just go to the create table option that you can see specify the numbers of fields and the forms will help you fill in the rest of the information. Adding and editing are also made easy with this.

What you are looking at there is a MySQl front end called phpMyAdmin.

A database isn't really so much something you see, it's just a way of oganizing data. That screenshot shows just one easy way to manage it. It's mostly for admin chores. You should be putting info into and out of your database via PHPscripts.

Thanks for your help guys .. I may need a bit of help with the php later on, but so far I'm doing pretty good with it.

So cheers!

Update: ok just to let you know what I was working on Emps. I hooked up the Database and everything seems to be working great there. The DB was for a PHP shoutbox that I am going to be working. So instead of starting a new thread I'll just run it by you here. Everything on the Shoutbox is straight foward and just about installs it'self, but I am stuck on a minuscule detail.

I have this in the configuration file.

code:
<?php
$servername = "";
$dbusername = "kriek_admin";
$dbpassword = "***";
$dbname = "kriek_shoutbox";
?>



(No my pass isn't that short .. I just threw that in.)

My question is .. where do I find the same of my server? Is this the "name server" that it's refering to? I was told that it was something like localhost.$servername = "localhost";.
