Creating a database
First thing you need to do before installing GoNews is to create a new database on your MySQL server. The database must be created under a MySQL user that has full permissions. If you already know how to do this or have already created one you can skip to the next step. But make sure you have noted the following details:
- 1. Database Name – The one you just created
- 2. MySQL Host – Usually it defaults to 127.0.0.1 or localhost, but if that doesn’t work you need to contact your hosting provider.
- 3. MySQL Username – The username of which you’ve created the database.
- 4. MySQL Password – The password for the MySQL user
