i’ve also installed on a shared hosting.
for “server host” and “user hostname” i have left the default settings of “localhost”.
Now that i am reading the install guide i noticed that i should replace the localhost with the ip address of the shared hosting apache/mysql server.
The installation seems to have completed without problems, i can login correctly and i operate it ok !!!
My questions that i hope are relevant to this thread are:
1.The shared hosting service doesn’t change IP address frequently? can i write the dns format instead of ip the address? (arvixe.com instead of 192.xx.xx.xx for example?)
2. if i write the ip address and after some days it gets changed, how should i write the new one? is it normal to change the ip address every so often?
2. does the localhost option that i left instead of the ip address means that i do not use the mysql server of the shared host and i am using an other version or an other instance from a folder inside the installation directory?
(i ask this because when i go to menu -> Administration -> Other -> Database , i can only see the openEMR database, and not all the databases that i currently have on my shared hosting provider)
I’m a new user here,
Thank you for your time.
