Free MySQL database...
Posted 18 January 2003 - 01:54 PM
I can\'t find any and my host doesn\'t support them..
Any help will be greatly appreciated...

Firstly, yes I know nothing about PHP, MySQL...
I\'ve got a forum uploaded to my domain webspace but my host doesn\'t support databases, meaning it will be rather difficult to get a forum that requires MySQL to work!
I have however found out that my Lycos/Tripod webspace allows me a MySQL table and after testing it all out, It all works on my Lycos webspace...
Here\'s the question, how would I remotely link to the database on Lycos from my other webspace? The host for Lycos would normally be \'localhost\' but this obviously won\'t work if the forum is hosted somewhere else...
What would I have to specify the host as?
If you can help, thanks, if you can\'t help, you probably still know more than me!

they are having problems at the moment, but there are very rare and if there do happen its working again very soon.
it also has a phpmyadmin page so that you can access you database abd add/edit it. sometimes it runs slow, but you cant expect very much for a free services.
it hosts I think its about 15000 database so I would say that others like it
including me, and its the only one that ive found that surports external hosts unlike lycos who only give you \"localhost\" for the host name.
anyway theres one for ya
