Pmachine Pro

I’m attempting to use “pmachinePro”. In the installation procedure, it states that one should setup up the top four variables of my server in the “config.php” file. What does that mean?

Presumably the following:

// HOST NAME OR SERVER ADDRESS
Example:
$hostname = “mysql.yourdomain.com”;

// MySQL USERNAME
Example
$dbusername = “username_you_chose_for_database”;

// MySQL PASSWORD
$dbpassword = “password_you_chose_for_database”;

// DATABASE NAME
Example:
$dbname = “name_you_chose_for_database”;

Before installing anything using mysql, you will want to FIRST create the database. When you create the database you will choose a database name, a database hostname (it’s a subdomain, really), a database user, and a password for that database user. Then wait for several hours, or as much as a day. I don’t bother running any install script until I can click on the database in my control panel and then log into the database using phpMyAdmin. Once I’ve thus verified that the database exits, I can connect through the hostname, and the user/password work, THEN I run my install script.

Hope this helps.
