Enter Database Name
If you chose to search for server automatically but the program didn't find any server (while you are sure that you have installed 'Full' or 'Server' component) you will have to enter server Name or IP address manually. If the program finds server or servers, it will create the list of found servers and you will need to select the one you would like to connect to. .
After you choose the server for connection or successfully entered server Name or IP address manually, the program will offer you to create a new database on this server or connect to existing one.
In case the connection is successful, you can set the program to connect to this database on this server automatically.
If you create a new database, the first time you can login as Administrator only because there are no other user accounts created. The password is 'admin'. When you are logged in you can change this password.
