Ok I know absolutely nothing about MySQL. I have installed Sendcard http://sendcard.resource-locator.com/ ,a postcard script written in PHP and it works fine. I don’t know how I got it set up and how I figured out how to set up the database but I did it So now I am assuming the cards that are sent are temporarily (i have it set for 14 days) stored in the database. I checked kbase and found that I needed telnet to access the database. I went and downloaded EasyTerm at http://www.arachnoid.com . I logged in and I’m getting errors. The one time that I believe I typed the correct thing in I got ‘ERROR 1045 access denied for user firstname.lastname@example.org’ I checked the domain it was trying to log me into and it’s someones blog. LOL So basically it had the correct user name but not the correct domain. What the heck did I do?? I swear I typed the stuff in correctly but I obviously didn’t. Is there an easier way to do this? Should I just leave it alone so I don’t cause problems? I’d like to at least know how to have access even though I guess I don’t need to do anything. Not that I’d know what to do anyways. LOL Also, is there anything I should know about security issues or anything. Like I said, I know nothing about MySQL. I’d like to learn but don’t want to cause problems if it’s possible.
Also, Since I have the cards stored for only 14 days does this mean they will automatically disappear then? What I’m wondering is if they just stack up and waste space or leave? I guess I should just go buy a book on MySQL and start reading, huh? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!!
