Hi,

I have finally successfully managed to get into the install page but whenever I did the below and submit, it gave me this : Unknown MySQL server host ‘http://shooweb.com’ (1)

DATABASE CONNECTION:

Host : http://shooweb.com

Username : yewjin

Database name : Magento

Password : *****

It wont go to the next step. Gave me an unknown MySQL server host. Should I add a MYSQL server host using CPANEL?

Why are you specifing hostname with ‘http://’ prefix ? I guess it should be just ‘shooweb.com’

I realised that I just needed to put in the IP address of my shared hosting. It works fine now. E.G

HOST : 70.123.21.20
