Hello. My name is David Summons with Graceroots Design here in Dallas, Texas. And today we're going to talk about MySQL. Now MySQL is a data base management software that helps many of the web2.0, many of the web applications that we use today save and store the data of the content that we view on many of the websites that we have. And you have a lot of content management systems like Joomla and WordPress. These applications require a MySQL data base to function and to install on a server. So what you want to do, you want to start with your C panel. Log into your hosting account. Here we're using bluehost for an example. And it should take you to your C panel it'll give you the options for the data bases which are of course being managed by MySQL. And let's go through the process of creating a data base. It's really sensitive and very intuitive, and at the end of the day it's a very friendly user approach to creating data bases. So here we're going to create a data base, we're just going to give it a name, which all data bases will have their own name specific to the data base. We're going to create the data base here. And as the C panel reloads, it'll give you a confirmation that it added the data base that we just created. And then the second part of creating a data base is a data base user. Now data base users are necessary to have log in credentials and security and the access to the data that's present or going to be present in your data base. So, let's locate our data base user. And what we're going to do, we're actually going to go down and create a user here, and it's going to ask you to create a password. Create your user and now once you have your data base created and your user created, you're simply going to assign the user to the data base or here the verbiage is actually add user to data base. So, we're going to select our user that we just created, David and our data base, Graceroot, and simply hit the add prompt. And you'll notice in our above, it's going to ask you for the privilege level. You can have several different security measures set in place if you want that user to be able to execute or create tables within that data base. You can select those options at your leisure. And once you're done you should see your data base and your user all connected and this information is what you're going to use to configure the web application that you're looking to install that requires MySQL. Again, my name is David Summons here with Graceroot Design in Dallas, Texas, and today we talked about starting up with MySQL data bases.
