hi experts,

im trying to make a register code for my small project and i come to the point where i need to conect to my web hosted database. im using PHP coding (as newbie, of course). i found many tutorials but i dont know how to use the following coding line:

mysql_connect("localhost", DATABASE, "PASSWORD") or die(mysql_error());

Open in new window


what should i use instead of "localhost" and DATABASE?

Any help in this matter will be highly appreciated.

Regards,
Raul

Have a look here as it is explained very nice:

Note that you can let localhost as the server when you upload your script to the server and only put the database name and the password to connect to it.
