Log In to your cPanel and click on MySQL Databases, there should also be a link to phpMyAdmin in there which will allow you to view your databases and perform queries.

The location of your database will probably be in /var/lib/mysql/ but you will need root access to your server to get in there. What are you trying to achieve exactly?

You need to check the datadir value of your configuration.

I am guessing /var/lib/mysql

I am glad to see that these boards are so active that you can't even grab a phonecall in the middle of answering a thread without someone answering before you :)

It's always better to have too much help then not enough :)

At least our answers don't conflict ;)
