For my websites I use Dreamhost. Dreamhost requires you to create a hostname (ex: mysql.mclindigital.com) that the database will reside on. For me it(s simple, if I want to access phpMyAdmin, I simply navigate to mysql.mclindigital.com, and it enters into phpMyAdmin automatically.
Apparently Dreamhost is in the minority using this method, because most people seem to use "localhost". So, how do I access phpMyAdmin for these websites? Will I need to get their Web Panel login info to browse around for this info?
As an example, I had a past client and I had to go here: http://184.108.40.206:2082/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/index.php to get into their phpMyAdmin. I never really understood what I was doing, but it just worked. Now I am in the same situation, but this time the client isn(t as tech-savvy and is unable to give me the URL I need to go to.
Also, I should point out I am not 100% certain that they have phpMyAdmin installed. I do know they have a database however, because they are running a Wordpress Blog.
