    Exclamation Help finding Mysql Database info.


    I'm running a Fedora 8 server and I can't find where the Mysql config files are. I need this because I am going to install phpBB3, and I can't find where the name and such are. I can't really remember setting these, up though I need them so I can install. I do remember that I left the install path as the default path. Thanks for the help.

    for the name though, i dont think you will find it in the MySql settings. the name is configured through the mysql interface (you can either use the command `mysql` and enter an interactive text mode, but you will need to know the commands to use it, or i suggest the mysql GUI tools, which you can use yum to find, or google them if your connecting from a windows machine.) It's also often called a schema. You create and name this yourself, there is no default.
