It was designed specifically for speed and stability and has become one of the most popular RDBMS for database-driven Web applications, both on and off the W eb . Today, more than 4 million web sites create, use, and deploy MySQL-based applications; that number rises daily.

Once access is granted, you can issue queries to databases either via phpMyAdmin or directly from a PHP script. 1. To access your database via phpMyAdmin , log on to the page at http://www.uri.edu/phpmyadmin/ with your username and password that were sent to you in the confirmation e-mail. You are then connected to your personal mySQL database via a Web interface! 2. To access a mySQL database through a php script , use the following code: where $ DBHost is the database host name - WebDB.mis.uri.edu $DBUser and $DBPass are the user id and password, respectively, sent to you in the confirmation e-mail and $DBName is the name of your database you requested. You can now begin issuing queries through the php script.
