Hi There

I am using host papa and gone in to set up my soholaunch using the /installsoholaunch.php command after my domain.

I am then told to set up a MYSQL database . I can find the file in public_html file manager. When i execute it, the DOS screen only last for a few seconds, and I can just read it say "can't connect...."

any ideas? Help?

thanks
Mary-Anne

You need to setup an MYSQL database within your host cpanel
before you run the installsoholaunch.php
Once you run it, it will ask you for the database info.

Yes you need to do it through your host.
Not sohoadmin.
In your hosts cpanel is mysql data base wizard.
That is where you would create it and add a user.
Note the name and login as you will be asked for it
during the soho setup/install.
