Common Application Database Connection Strings

Project: Php/MySQL Connection strings on GoDaddy Servers

Description: A short list of where the connection strings are on GoDaddy servers at the time of this writing. (January 2011)
Project Goals: To keep a list that I can get to from anywhere, without needing my laptop, notebook, or phone. All I need to perform any of these tasks is a machine and an internet connection. This list was actually created by GoDaddy technicians… not me, so it should be accurate.
