Note: substitute the following values in the script below:
$hostname = the database server (i.e. sql2.letushost.com), $database = the new database (named after your username), $user = your username and $password = the password you set.

use DBI;
$driver = "mysql";
$dsn = "DBI:$driver:database=$database;host=$hostname";
$dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $password);



For more information, please read the documentation about DBI.pm.
