How do I set up a database using MySQL


Recommended Posts



Log into your Hosting account and create a 'blank' database using SQL 4 or SQL 5, depending on what your server is set up for. Make note of the name, and password you create while making the blank database. You will also need the name of the database which will look something like this:




When you install your newly uploaded Oscommerce software, it will ask you : DB_SERVER_NAME, DB_SERVER_USERNAME, DB_SERVER_PASSWORD.........this is the information you entered when you created the Database. Most servers take some time ( 30 minutes to 24 hrs) to create the blank database.......so, do it, then go back to the install process later.


The process is not that difficult..........just follow directions.




Good luck
