How do I Add a Shared SQL Database?

When you sign up for a VPS or Dedicated server account you will receive two emails from Server Intellect. The second contains your login information for your Windows server but the first contains the control panel information for the shared SQL server.

Step 1

Locate the section of the first email that contains the SQL information. It should look something like this.
