    Hi there,

    I'm trying to install Drupal (a php-based CMS that uses a MySQL database). The install instructions assume one has shell access, and I don't know how to carry out the commands (such as:
    $ mysql -u nobody -p drupal < database/database.mysql
    and things like that) without shell access.

    I don't have shell access.

    Is there another way to set properties for a MySQL database? All I can figure out how to do now is create a new database and create a table, and installing Drupal requires a lot more settings than that. ?/

    any ideas ? Support Ticket Number:

    Dear Markwaugh,

    There are many ways you could do this.

    If you have a mysql client, you can access the remote mysql server through

    mysql -h <specify the server> -D <databasename> -u <username> -p<password>

    After entering use the mysqlimport for importing data. The following link will help you further.
