This window opens from the Add... command in the Data Management window, and you can define settings for a new database to link to the current project.
The Database Settings that you need to specify are:
|▪||Description: give the database a name so that you can identify it more easily.|
|▪||Host Name: enter the URL address of the SQL server where the database is stored online. The database is usually stored on the same server which hosts the website it is linked to, and so "localhost" is often used. Check with your provider that the database and website are on the same server.|
|▪||Database Name: enter the name of the database you want to work on (you can obtain this from your provider).|
|▪||Username: enter the username (that your provider gives you) needed to access the online database.|
|▪||Password: enter the password (that your provider gives you) needed to access the online database.|
