Pretty technical DBI questionby DaWolf (Curate)
|on Nov 14, 2000 at 00:46 UTC||Need Help??|
DaWolf has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to start programming a script that connects to a mySQL database using the DBI module. Well, so far so good, I can perfectly understand the syntax of it, but I have a real BASIC and VERY IMPORTANT question that is VITAL to start the whole thing.
I'll have to do most of the support for the implementation of this script, and the client have his database ready and a linux server where the site will be hosted, wich is great.
My question is: Where the database must be? How the server will "know" where the database is so when executes the connect call? I know that maybe I'm posting something that doesn't have a DIRECT relation with perl, but I'm really desperate here, since it's my first job on SQL and DBI and I don't even know how the connection actually works....
If ANYONE can help me it would be gratefully appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Er Galv„o Abbott
