Hi there,

You're not specifying the MySQL hostname correctly. MySQL doesn't run on Cobra (the CGI server), it runs on one of two servers:

rumpus
humbug

Which one your account is created on will be shown in the email you received. If you're using the MySQL command-line, you can specify this by using the -h option, like this:

$mysql -u platty -p -h (humbug or rumpus) platty_fol

You'll then be prompted for your MySQL password (this is in the email).

If you're not using the command-line and it's part of a script (as I suspect it will be), simply input "rumpus" or "humbug" into the "MySQL Hostname" or "Database host" field in the setup script.

Hope this helps,
Mike

RE: invision board

thanks for ur quick reply, but i gave up on that and decided on phpbb instead (i was told it was easy, which it was) but now i can't get the board to send confirmation e-mails, i'm using relay.free-online.net
is that right?Huh
