MySQL Details

  • the host name for your database – if you are installing locally or on a dedicated, remote host – this host name is likely to be localhost. If you are installing remotely to a shared hosting Web server and database it is likely that your host provider has their own way of identifying a particular customer's database, and you must make sure you have this information to hand if you are to successfully complete the installation.

    • Your host name:

  • the username and password of the database root user – your access keys to the database. Again if you are installing locally or to a dedicated remote host these are likely to either be the default settings or a name and password that you had previously entered during installation of the database software. The default username is typically root, although you can change this for something else if you want - just make sure you keep a note of it. See the next section Secure Password Thinking for some hints.

    • Your username:

    • Your password:

  • the database name by which you are identifying the database for this Web site. For a localhost or dedicated remote server you will be able to set this to what you want but on shared or virtual hosted servers these may again be set by the host company.

    • Your database name:

Warning! By default the standard installation of MySQL does not use a password - it is blank. This will not be accepted by Joomla! nor is it a particularly wise security habit to get into. You must ensure that you have set a password up within the my.ini file which is the configuration file of MySQL.
