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 http://www.webexpose.net. 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.

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.

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
