    Hi Skill, Don;t know if I will be much help here as I host with hostgator and not godaddy. But there is an area in your control panel to set up the mysql database. I should think godaddy would have the same set up in their control panel. Sorry if this isn't helping.

    Hey, I use Godaddy, you can use any name for your Mysql database names. To upload php pages, you just upload with an ftp to your hosting account just like other files. Godaddy has a huge help section too, you may want to check that out. The Godaddy connections site has php apps you can upload with one click. These apps install with the Mysql already named and written for you. Hope that helps.

      Hi Chris,

      I have a couple of questions to help clarify your issue for me:

      1.) Are you using a pre-built application to build your membership site or are you trying to code this from scratch?

      2.) Have you looked at any of the online documentation or training offered?
      MySQL Documentation
      PHP Documentation

    In your cpanel (I *think* hostgator has cpanel don't they?) backend, you should see an option called "database wizard". I think this would be the easiest method for you to use.. it will walk you through step by step in first setting up your database by prompting you to assign it a name, then it will take you through setting up a user account for your database along with a password, then finally it will give you a screen in which you can assign the permissions for that user to have for the database (i would imagine you would want to grant full access in this case).

    Then for whatever script you are using, you will fill in the database values in whatever happens to be that program's configuration script.

    That's a generic overview anyway. If you had a bit more specific details (what script or what error messages you get etc) it might help people in answering your question a bit better.
