How do I set-up a database?
Posted by Paul Carter on 30 March 2007 09:39 AM

There are two types of databases that you can add through the eHosting control panel; MSSQL and MYSQL.  However, only MySQL databases are available on Linux subscriptions. 

 

To add a database to your domain please login to your eHosting control panel and navigate to your subscription.  If you are unsure as to how to do this please see this guide:
