    Uploading to Server.

    Okay my domain hostest supports MySQL.

    Will I have to upload the MySQL program to the servers? Or should he already have it on his servers?


    Now a few other questions


    1. How do I sign up for a MySQL account? Someone on another forum told me I needed to set up an account before he could help me set up my 'forum'.

    2. Does it cost money to set up an account?

    Generally, when a host says they "support" mySQL, they already have it installed. As far as how to "set up an account", I assume you mean create a DB.

    Hopefully, they have phpMyAdmin istalled. This makes the process easier for a newbie. If they don't you'll have to login to the server (ssh / telnet) and set up a DB from the command line. Find out what your host offers, let us know, and we'll help you set up a DB.

    Hope this helps.
