GUI Tools - Server host (newbie) - MySQL

Hi all, I have been using MySQL under Windows XP for some months. Now, I decided to install the GUI Tools. The installation went fine, but I am unable to use them, because when I try to do that, the tool asks for certain data, among which the "Sever Host". What should I answer here? I tried the machine name, but it did not work. Best regards, Jose Carlos Santos...

    Default GUI Tools - Server host (newbie)

    Hi all,

    I have been using MySQL under Windows XP for some months. Now, I decided
    to install the GUI Tools. The installation went fine, but I am unable to
    use them, because when I try to do that, the tool asks for certain data,
    among which the "Sever Host". What should I answer here? I tried the
    machine name, but it did not work.

    Best regards,

    hi Carlos,
    you need these parameters:

    hostname
    the name or the IP of maching with mysql (e.g. mysql.yourserver.com)

    username
    the username used for connection

    password
    the password used for connection

    database name
    the database you want use in this connection..


    Consider that a lot of hosting provider don't allow you to make remote
    connections (so, use GUI Tools). You need to be able to connect using
    the TCP/IP port 3306.

    if you have doubt on parameters discussed before (hostname, username,
    ecc.) I suggest to buy a book on mysql before continuing ;)

    regards

    Is the database on the same machine? Then the server name is "localhost"
    or just use the IP: 127.0.0.1
