We've recently performed some software upgrades to both cPanel and the Client Area that has resulted in some of the KB articles appearing outdated and obsolete. We are working to update and/or remove the affected articles but this may take some time. We appreciate your patience!

What is the MySQL Default Hostname?

All of our servers are configured with MySQL listening on localhost.  If you install from Fantastico, it will use this automatically.  If you are building your own app or just need to configure one, just use localhost as the Hostname for MySQL.  If you are using remote MySQL, you may use your domain name or the server name. ie, server.lithiumhosting.com:3306.  You can then use your cpanel username and password, or a database specific username and password for authentication
