Drupal Web Design Series - Episode 6 - How to Setup your Mysql Database

This is episode 6 in our Drupal Web Design Series. The final preparation step to get your Drupal site live is to setup a Mysql database on your server. Every Drupal site requires at least one Mysql database. The Mysql database is where all your website data is stored. This is common for almost all current websites. The only time you wont need a database is if you have a static website. We will show you how to setup your Mysql database using the CPANEL server software. If you purchased a Godaddy plan, you will have this server software. If you used a different provider and they don't offer CPANEL, the process is similar, and you should be able to follow along with our tutorial. Enjoy!

SitePoint - The SEO Business Guide

I have been a long time fan of SitePoint.com for their fantastic web design and CSS articles. I found myself, more often than not, being directed to Sitepoint.com through my Google results when searching for answers on CSS and web design problems.

I came across this ebook series, that SitePoint has created, called The SEO Business Guide. A friend of mine had recommended it to me so I checked it out. You can even get a few chapters of the book for free. From what I read it was a worth while read. SEO is very important to any web designer these days, if you want a good starting point, have a look at SitePoints SEO guide book.
