Follow these steps to create your MySQL  account:
Your MySQL user name and password must be different from your regular HSU account credentials to protect the security of your personal and web account data. If you forget your MySQL user name or password, you can return to the "Request a MySQL Account" screen and change the information.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not make any file that contains a password to a database, such as a config file, universally readable.
To access your MySQL account in order to create tables and other onscreen data displays for your website, use PHPMyAdmin  (MySQL login credentials required). To reference your MySQL account in config files, use the host name hsuweb-mysql.humboldt.edu.
HSU has adopted Drupal  as the campus-wide content management system. Drupal is centrally managed, and patched and updated at regular intervals, so for security reasons please do not install any other content management system on the Central or User Web Servers. Any account that is found to be using another content management system will be immediately shut down.
