PHP MySQL SSH


#1

Hello!

I’m trying to create a php script to allow photos to be uploaded. I purchased EzUpload, but not I need to find out how to set it up.

So, I read up about php and mysql. I set-up a SQL db called crays_main@mysql.c-rays.biz (according to Wikipedia). The next step says to “login to your DH account” from a shell account.

So, I dl PuTTY. It asks for a hostname (www.c-rays.biz) I think, but then a login and pswd. I’ve tried my login and pswd from DH panel, but it didn’t like that. Do I have another one?

Somewhere, Wiki says to type ssh -1 your login www.yourdomain.com

I’m certain this is just a misunderstanding on my part, please help.

I’m so confused. Thanks for any help.
Julie

Read the KBase article on using databases at DH. It should clear up some of your questions.
