Hello, I have searched and searched till I am blue in the face but having no luck or I am not finding out just how to do this... What I am wanting to know is say I want to install a module on a php website and it requires you to install a sql database... Just how do I install this PLEASE.... I know to go to myphpadmin but when I get there I am just totally lost lol... I know how to install blocks and stuff but when it comes to the mysql I am just totally stumped and just cant seem to get it figured out.. I am hoping there will be a nice web guru hre that will help... My web site is http://www.gametimekiddies.org and I think have have done a decent job so far but I have had to get some help to install a few things but now I am wanting to advance my BRAIN to do it myself....
Thx to anyone who will respond to this....

I don't think it is possible to create a database via a web interface (although I admit I am not NEARLY as smart on this as many other users on here are).
It might help to know more about the who, what, when where, why you need to be able to create a database via php, because there may be a way around it. (I don't know what you know about php, SQL, etc.)
What I suggest is to create a MySQL database through the bluehost control panel, then rather than have the php module create a new database, have the php module use a table prefix within that database rather than an entirely new database. For example:
Create "gametimekiddies" sql database
When someone signs up as User1, have your php module, instead of trying to create User1 database, create table with prefix User1_table1, etc.
Hope this helps somewhat, if not let me know. . . I'm a master at making something work when I don't have a clue how it works. :)

Open a ticket with the support guys, they are really great at this type of thing.
