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
