Topic: mySQL setup
I decided to make a new thread as I am now in a different situation... I e-mailed my sysadmin about creating a PostregSQL account and he gave me this very vague response: "we use mysql and support phpmysql .. dedicated server, with raid and backups"
In other words, it looks like I'll have to try using mySQL.
I have no idea what to do here. Does my sysadmin have to create an account for me, or can I do that on my own?
Also, how do I actually go about *creating* a database?
I've been trying some testing locally with the root mysql account, but I keep getting this message:
Checking for database connection ... FAILED - please check connection settings ( [DB Error: extension not found] ** mysql://root:[password]@unix(/usr/local/mysql/mysql.sock)/ochiba.sql)
Very noobish questions I guess but I am a giant mySQL noob after all...
