Where can I find the database host?
Trying to install Drupal and it requires a database host. Where can I find this info?
As long as the program is on the same server as the database, which is the case with our servers, you will want to use 'localhost' as the database hostname.
If you are needing to test an external connection, you can use the domain name (if pointed to our nameservers) or the server IP address. This is located on the left hand panel of your cPanel under the Stats (ensure they are expanded) and is labeled Shared IP. Here is our article for reference, entitled How to find your Shared IP address of your server in cPanel
