WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Has anyone installed opencart on Webfaction? I'm trying to do the installation process and cannot figure out what the database host & user are. I'm assuming that the user is my account name, but I cannot guarantee that. also, do I need to create a database before going through the installation process? If so, how do I find out what my database password is when setting it up to the Webfaction control panel?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The server will be localhost and the username will be the database name. When you create a database the control panel will display the password than, but it will not persist. You can not find it later in the control panel but you can change it. Our guide on databases covers these things.
