What are the Basic Connection Settings for MySQL? Print

  • MySQL, Database
  • 0

There are two different ways to connect to a MySQL database: 

Locally - from a script on the server, to the server for which the settings are: 
Hostname: localhost 
Username: username_dbuser 
Password: dbpassword
db_name: username_dbname
db_table: dbname_table 

Remotely - from a remote computer, using Shell, ODBC, or Navicat.
The settings are the same as above, but you must use yourdomain.com in place of 'localhost'.
