    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 :)
