ok so i am at part 4 of the tutorial..Connecting to MySQL with PHP--->
where do i type this function? .....mysql_connect(<address>, <username>, <password> );
is it on mysqld?
I seem not to follow although it might appear intuitive.
By the way: i appreciate all the help!

You execute the mysql_connect function in your PHP page. Before you do mysql_query or anything like that.
mysql_connect() is a PHP function, just like echo() (which you should have learned in Part 3). As such, you put it in a PHP script inside your Web page.
If this is confusing, let me know and I'll try to give a more complete explanation.
