Let me start off by saying that I have never even touched MySQL before today. I knew it existed - and I had a faint idea that it was something to do with a database - that's it.
I bought easyphpcalendar, and i'm trying to set it up. i noticed that i had to create a database? so i went to the database tab in the setup manager and saw stuff about MySQL. I said, i know i have that in my hosting cPanel. So i went in and created a database and assigned it a user and password.
the problem is, i have no idea what to call it in the setup manager - i tried every combination of the words i saw in my cPanel, but nothing worked. the database i created is called y2keefus_acalendar, but when i put that in i get this:
There was an error connecting to the mySQL database.
The error was reported as:
Unknown MySQL server host 'y2keefus_acalendar' (1)
what do i do? i searched the forum for answers, but everyone seems to be much more advanced with this, so their questions were never really this basic. I also looked through the documentation, but i'm an idiot i guess.
basically, i need to know what to put (or how to find out what to put) in the "database host" & "database name" section.
i have hostgator as a host if that means anything.
-YOU CAN ERASE THIS - I FIGURED IT OUT!!! i'm not as dumb as i thought (pretty close though)
