Is there a way to access the mysql database though a different site becuase my friend has a website http://hateandrage.com and it doesnt have mysql but mine does so i was wondering if i could use a database off of my site for his site...

In principle, the only difference would be specifying the hostname instead of localhost; in practice, the port has to be open, the other server has to accept remote connections, and you have to have valid login credentials.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
