    i've been following kevin's articles and have run into a problem early on. my web host is providing the mySQL server. I am using a program called myAdmin to connect,
    and get the error "Host 'HSE-Montreal-ppp33601.qc.sympatico.ca' is not
    allowed to connect to this MySQL server". i have entered the correct password and address etc., so i just don't understand. my host does not support telnet.
    i'm totally confused and am sure there is something totally basic that i'm doing wrong. i appreciate any and all help.

    It sounds as if you are doing everything right, but your host does not allow connecting from a remote site. I'd contact your host to see what method they recommend for connecting to your MySQL server. It could be that they expect you to install something like PHPMyAdmin (available free from http://www.php.net/ in the "Projects" section) on your Web server.

    re: kyank's reply,
    the provider did actually recommend I use phpMyAdmin. all the files for that program are .php3 which i take to mean i can't run the program on my machine at home. if it's the case that i have to install it on my provider's machine, would i only have to copy the files there, and then intall?

    actually, i ended up doing exactly what i was questioning, (above). now i'm faced with the whole config thing. when i access the config.php3 file, i get a blank page which i assume to mean that no config data is there. if i'm correct, can anyone tell me how to write the neccessary config data for phpMyAdmin? Thanks all.

    You need to read the INSTALL file included in the PHPMyAdmin package for complete installation instructions.
