    mysql questions

    Hello I was wondering if I could know a little bit more about using mysql. Just curious if you have a web site and use a web host, and if you want to use server side programming like php or asp, how do you set up mysql, would there be a feature that the web hosting company would give you, or something. Thanks for any help.

    I believe most hosts provide at least one database. For example, there are many LAMP hosts. The "M" stands for MySQL. With ASP, the most common database might be MS SQL.

    But AFAIK, with enough looking you should be able to find a host that offers whatever scripting language - database type combination you want.

    With MySQL many hosts have phpMyAdmin which is a program that provides an administration interface with the database. I imagine most hosts provide something similar for whatever database they have.
