Anyone use hosting by GoDaddy.com if so, how the HELL do you create database users?!

Hey guys!
I need help. ><
I'm really used to Cpanel, but my client has choosen GoDaddy, and their interface, is something I do not understand, (lots of spam and adverts on their site.) Been trying to make a database username, the site says I do not need one to access the database.

Xoops installsion cannot find itself.

Need help.

I USED to have GoDaddy for hosting. I found that the username and password for your databases are your GoDaddy username and password. The EXACT same password you use to FTP into your server. Try that, if it is not right you should contact a GoDaddy CSR.

What about physical path? Does'nt seem to work, getting a d:/hosting/*account name here*.

Beacause, when I do it, I get:
Saving configuration data..
Could not write into mainfile.phpPlease check the file permission and try again.

create a file called test.php which looks like this:
phpinfo()
?>

Upload to the XOOPS root folder, and load it in your browser. This will display all kinds of info, including the script_path or something like that. That's your physical path.

I use godaddy to manage my domains, but not to host them. For domain management they're pretty good (and cheap too)

Is phsyicall path: _SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"] ?

Edit: I know I might sound like a total newb. I thought these things were basic and easy too. But I can not get it to work. It won't write to the file... do you have to upload it a certain way? Binary?

It's mind bloggled me.
I hate when webservers try to make their own interface. GAH.

EDIT: Would Windows NT WINHOST11 5.2 build 3790 have anything to do it? I figured I would CHMOD the permissions, but then it's not a linux server, so I cant... =((((

Help please. ><

If its on a *nix server the physical path will be something like /home/somethinghere/public_html but you need to check this with your provider

You need change the permissions on mainfile.php before you can edit it. You can do that through your FTP program. Normally it should be 444 but to edit it you should change it to 744 then change it back afterwards.

Actually change the chmod to 777. See this Chmod Flash Tutorial on what and how to change file/folder permissions.

That will work too, but it will also give the whole world access to mainfile.php which isn't safe and is not necessary to edit the file through a browser filemanger.

But it appears he is trying to run the installation script for a new installation, not editing mainfile.php for an existing install. Sure 777 is a security risk, as I state in the tutorial for mainfile.php, you change the permissions edit and change to chmod 444 for security.
