Hello

I want to get this program to be able to write to MySQL on my server, unfortunately I get this error;
The database settings are invalid: Error 1045.

Must I first create the database name in MySQL; I have no experience with database, specifically MySQL.

Yeah, you must create database. And maybe you want to create some tables in it :)

@WilliamCawley If you want to store something into database, you must have a database (imagine a house) which has a name (address of the house), tables in it (rooms in the house) and columns (shelves and wardrobes in rooms). Then you can put data in rows (clothes in the wardrobe). Also, you need credentials to be able to connect to the database and read or write to it (key to the house). Good start is to make a database and tables with columns in it, then you can put data into the rows either manually or programatically.
