Where can I find my MS SQL information?

0 votes

I am on a Gold Shared hosting package (1 ms sql db instance) and I cannot seem to locate the server information. There is only MySQL db information in the website manager.

Things I need or  have:

  • Server Type: Database Engine
  • Server Name: ?
  • Authentication: SQL Server authentication
  • Username: ?
  • Password: ?

Note: This is for a remote connection via SSMS.

Good day,

I trust you are well,

The 1st step would be to create the database via website manager, once created you can access the database and settings.

Thanks for the response. The problem is that I can't do it on the website manager as I don't have an option to do so. I needed to get Afrihost to manually update the information on the website manager when I upgraded packages (as it still had the old package info on it and no support for MS SQL only MySQL). But this didn't update anything else besides a text box that said gold instead of silver....
