The connect screen:

This is the first thing you see after running BookBase.  It is where you connect to the MySQL database.

Host is the hostname of the server upon which your MySQL database resides.
User is your login name to aforementioned database.
Database is the database name.
Password is your password to aforementioned database.

Quite simple.

The Messages window will display the status of your connection to your database, as well as print every SQL command run while using BookBase.  This is excellent for troubleshooting purposes, and good for those of us who like to know what goes on behind the scenes.

Once connected to your database, move on to the BOOK section.
