    Hey everybody!
    I have a question, I just got XenForo and my Web Hosting, but I can't seem to find an article about setting up MySQL.
    How would I go about doing this?
    My Web Host provides me with 25 MySQL databases that I can use.

    Thanks!

    *EDIT*: Also, the "World Writable" permission, where would that be in FileZilla? Can't find that specific option.

    Do you mean creating the SQL database?

    If you have cPanel, click on the MySQL Databases icon and create the database from there.

    Then create a user and give that user full permissions for the database.

    It is these values you will enter in the ACP when installing the software.

    Ah right, that's it? Do I have to link up anything or do I just make a database and randomly name it?
    Also, how do I do the World Writable permission in Filezilla? Is "World Writable" also called Public or what?

    Thanks!

    I know, but I can't find the World Writable option there. Oh well, I'll just try randomly.
    Also, do I enable "Direct Database Access" for my MySQL database?

    World writeable is 0777, which is what you set in your FTP client.

    Alright, got it. Thanks!
    And for the MySQL database, do I enable direct access?
    That's my last question, I promise. =]

    Where is that option?
    I don't believe I have seen it before when creating a new database.

    It's with GoDaddy, I'll just leave it default then. Thanks!
