Help with database install. (4 posts)

    Hi I have set the following.

    define('DB_NAME', 'db.armadadistribution.co.uk'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'armadacomputers4'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'XXXXXX'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value.

    Is this correct my ISP is freedom2surf and I currently have several databases running on our server with no problems. So i know they are all working okay.

    My ISP's control panels lists the username and database name as ArmadaComputers4 so am unsure what to put in DB_NAME also I must have to point the code at the database location db.armadadistribution.co.uk but also unsure where to put this reference.

    Your help in clearing this up is most appreciated.

    I think localhost is wrong for f2s ?
    Put the "db.armadadistribution.co.uk" there ?

    Okay I now have

    define('DB_NAME', 'armadacomputers4');
    define('DB_USER', 'armadacomputers4');
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'XXXXXX');
    define('DB_HOST', 'db.armadadistribution.co.uk');

    But still no joy, is the db_name supposed to be a table i need to construct inside armadacomputers4 or does the install program create this itself in this case should db_name just be the name I wish the database to be.

    Regards
