How do I connect to a database?
The most common database used with a Xoops installation is MySQL, an excellent open source database.

To connect you Xoops installation to a database you need three items:

1. A database name.

2. A database username

3. A database password.

All of this information is stored in mainfile.php so Xoops can automatically connect to the database as needed.
