Hello. Installed mysql and tried to set it up. The problem is I didn't know what the hell I was doing, and what the hell I did. Can anyone help me locate my database and find out if I set it up right. I'm not sure if my password was set, so it might not be secure. No matter, there is nothing in the database.

Can anyone help me locate my database and find out if I set it up right.

Help with mysql

Hi mattmikulla,
If you have mysql installed on your server you should connect to the server via ssh.
Initially you have a user name "root" without a password.

Here's a couple of pages from the mysql manual that will be helpfull.
