    Where is the user name of the MySQL database located?
    I mean, once a db is created, how do you find your db name?
    Am I in error?

    Also, php Myadmin link doesn't seem to work properly.

    See below-

    phpMyadmin - error

    #2005 unknown MySQL server host "'local host"' 3

    Hey,

    Your username for any MySQL database you create it the same as the username for cPanel.

    So if your username for cPanel was account1 and password was cool. Your MySQL information would be

    User: account1
    Pass: cool

    Then your MySQL DB name would be account1_DATABASEname. All this information is shown in the MySQL section of cPanel.

    As for the MySQL error, its localhost not local host. Your host should help you with most of these problems.

    From,
    Adam
