Only thing i can think of is that it doesn''t work becasue i dont have http:// type of thing just akjfj.lkadfj.net. Is there a normal thing that goes before the url liek http:// for sql?

Generally with mysql & php on a server the url string for the connect command should be "localhost" unless you''re trying to connect to a database on a different server...so I''d suggest using $sqlurl = "localhost";

You really need to be more informative about what the problem is - what are the symptoms ? I''m assuming you get a webpage back with the words "could not connect" printed on it?

/* Connect to database */
$link = mysql_connect("localhost", "$username", "$password")
or die("Could not connect : " . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("aaronds") or die("Could not select database");

This is what I use.
youll need to set
$username = "somename";
$password = "somepassword";
