Accessing your mysql database in your scripts

Please note, different scripts may use different terms to describe their settings. If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact Technical Support (support@crosscape.net.au)
Most PHP or Perl scripts will require the same settings to connect to your MySQL database. These settings are:

Server / Host address: your domain name, prepended by mysql. (eg. mysql.mywebsite.com.au)
Username: This is the MySQL username.
Password: This is the MySQL username's password.
Database name: This is in the format username_db. eg, if your username is user, your database name will be user_db.

Your primary username and password were sent to you in your Welcome Email when your account was created. If you no longer have this, or need to recover your password, there is a password section in your Toolkit http://www.hosting-toolkit.net
