I am having problems with MySQL settings?

When you are installing scripts or web-based applications, the MySQL settings need to be entered in a certain format.

For example, if you set up a database called 'dbase' in cPanel, the full database and user names will have your cPanel account name prefixed in front of them, separated by an underscore:

Database server: localhost (or domain.com.au for remote use)

Database name: account_dbase

Datbase user: account_dbusername 

Password: password you set in cPanel
