Hello tfiero,

Thank you for your question about MySQL information. If you are installing software to the server that needs to connect to MySQL databases, the hostname will be localhost. We have step-by-step instructions for that in our article on Manual Installation of PHP Software.

If you instead need to connect remotely to a database, you will want to follow the steps in our How to Setup a Remote MySQL Connection article.

Thank you,

Christi N.
