What is the mysql server?


#1

Im installing a program that uses mysql and what is the mysql server? the mysql.mydomain.com that i set up? or something else?

e107 was unable to establish a connection to mySQL using the information you entered.
Please return to the last page and ensure the information is correct.

i made the database and i set up user and i set up the hostname. the user status is active but host name says changed… so just wondering?

When you setup a hostname for a database, it takes sometime before you can access the database. In order to see if you can access the database, just browse to the hostname in a web browser. If your browser prompts for a username and password, everything should be ready to go.
