Click on ACCOUNT at the top of this page and you will see all your settings. The name you need is Control panel username and your password is the same as your password for accessing the forums.
This is different in DirectAdmin than for cPanel.
You need to login to DirectAdmin and create a database with user there. The username you got/specified there (it will start with your DirectAdmin username and an underscore) and the password should be used for phpMyAdmin.
Ok I created a database and finally managed to log into my phpMyAdmin account.
Now what should I do next?
Do I have to link the database to my web pages to use php or activate it in apache?
I am really confused!
Tables can be created using php right?
Also, it's probably better to make your tables yourself, making them in php requires coding work that isn't really necessary. After that, you can add/delete data from the tables using php.
