Need a point in the right direction regarding MySQL setup
I'm at a stand still here.
I'm trying to connect to MySQL and I don't have a sweet clue how to figure it out. I know HTML, CSS and a little bit of PHP. Completely green to MySQL.
For the last 24 hours I've been trying to connect to a localhost/root server after downloading and installing MySQL server and workbench. Tried everything and still wasn't able to connect. It has recently been brought to my attention that I probably can't do this, and that I need to connect/use everything on GoDaddy instead.
Which leads me to my next question - how do I connect to MySQL using GoDaddy?
I created a database user and created a database. Do I need an access host? I created one of those called "myaccesshostexample." There's an IP address showing here as well but I never created it, it just showed up?
