How To Configure a MySQL Client

Configuring an application to use MySQL generally requires the following information:

  • Server Name - Log into, select the server you are connecting to from the dropdown menu, and click on "About" to see the server name.
  • Port - The default port is: 3306
  • Username - Your UT NetID.
  • Password - A database account uses your NetID for an account name, but it does not sync your NetID password. You will need to specify a different non-expiring password for use with your database account.
  • Database Name - If you used the self-service web site to create a database, the database name will be netid_xxxx, where "netid" is the NetID you used to login to the site, and "xxxx" is the name you used to create your database.
