I'm really grasping at straws here. I've actually managed to teach myself everything on my own. However I can not actually find my freakin' host name! I have been taking care of a Joomla! 1.5 site and went to see what the host name was there. I'm not really following why there's a 3306 at the end, also when I try to do the same thing on my NEW installation it DOESN'T WORK!
I'm ready to pull my hair out! *tear* Can anyone please help me find out what(or where) I can find my host name so I can get onto building my website?
*EDIT* Never mind guys, I figured out what the problem was.
Care to share the solution? I'm a graphic designer here and am only just now getting into actually "maintaining" a website. I know the markup to create a form on my website, but not sure what to enter in the "action" field or where to find the URL for my database.
It's weird because I created a database but it wont show up? When I tyr to re-create the same database it says "there is already a database with this name. Try another name." If there is already a database with that name then where is it?! driving me nuts...
