    During a search, I ran across a message which pretty much had the question I have. However, there wasn't a response probably because it wasn't posted to this section. So, I am reposting it here to see if someone could help out. Thanks!

    Origian post by alexming:

    Allright now I have always been a Unix type person but in the spirit of learning something new (PHP4 and MySql on NT) I got an account at Here's the thing though... they support php4 and mysql but the question is: How the heck do you create a MySql database on an NT sever (virtual account) if you are not "root" hmm I mean the administrator?

    As silly as this sounds right now... here's a copy of the email that I sent to support along with their responce which basically sounds like they had no idea how to do it.


    We don't directly create these. You should be able to create these yourself
    if your familiar enough. In the near future we are installing a section on
    the control panel to automate this. Our suggestion is if your not
    comfortable with attempting it yourself (as others have done successfully),
    wait for a week until the new panel is operational.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    In your list of services it says that you support MySql. Does this database
    already exist for our account and if so how do we access
    it? If it has not been created yet, is there a charge for this? Any information regarding this matter would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Now does that make sence to anyone here? ("You SHOULD be able to create these yourself...")
    Is it just me or is MySql on NT a running process and not something that you just upload and query much less create a database remotely and on a virtual account no less?.
    Perhaps I should ask them for their PcAnywhare administrator logon Info..... interesting.

    Thank for any help given in advance

    If you have telnet access to your host, then you should be able to make a database from there, using these commands:
    You can then install phpMyAdmin from which will let you make tables etc.

    Hope that helps!
