MySQL Description
MySQL is a SQL (Standard Query Language) database engine that is well-suited for most web sites. We include unlimited MySQL database of all of our plans! The Official Site for MySQL has a lot of valuable information about it.

You may add, remove, and manage your MySQL database(s) from our DreamHost Web Panel.

Web based administration for all MySQL databases!

You can now access all MySQL databases with us via a web interface (php MyAdmin)! Simply go to your database hostname on the web! So if your MySQL host was mysql.mydomain.net, just point your browser to http://mysql.mydomain.net/

Please keep in mind that if you just created your MySQL hostname, that new domain name will have to propagate around the internet just like any other. This can take up to 3 days, depending on how cool your local ISP is.
