What are the Basic Connection Settings for MySQL?

There are two different ways to connect to a MySQL database. Locally (from a script on the server, to the server), and Remotely (from a remote computer, using Shell, ODBC, or Navicat)

Locally, the settings are:
Hostname: localhost
Username: username_dbuser
Password: dbpassword
db_name: username_dbname
db_table: dbname_table

Remotely, the settings are the same, but you must use yourdomain.com in place of 'localhost'.
