I think you're asking what the server OUGHT to be. "localhost" is the default but is not what you want unless your MySQL server is the same system as the web server your store is on.


Contact your hosting service and ask for the correct server name. You should have been given this when you created the database initially.

Thanks to Mike and Steve.


Now i got it connected, i just want to try out oscommece on my pc first b4 i upload it to the webserver.


However, i think i haven't created a database in MySql together with the permissions for the user that will be using the database, thus getting an error msg saying incorrect username and passwd etc.


How do I create a db in MySQL and set the permission for it? I'm using mysql ver4.0.18 under WinXP.


Thanks again!
