How do I manage a MySQL database?

Managing a MySQL database:
A MySQL database physically resides on a separate server. You will not be able to download it by FTP. Instead you will edit the database live in real-time.
To do this, you will need to connect to the database using a database management tool. For MySQL you have two choices:
IP Address: Please search the KB for "Important IP Addresses".
Database: The database name you created.
Username: The database username you created.
Password: The database password you created.
NOTE: Instead of the IP address you can also use: sql.ephost.com or sql.your-domain.com. We suggest that you use the internal IP address above when connecting to the database from your scripts.
Complete details on how to manage your database from a programming standpoint is beyond the scope of this document. More information as well as tutorials can be found on the MySQL website.
