> 1)Can you tel me where can i change the server name instead of localhost.
From the command line
mysql -h localhost -u root -p databasename --password=root
Where -h stands for host.

This pretty much covers it: [debianhelp.co.uk...]
As I said earlier, it depends on the setup. On shared hosts you may not be able to edit the MySQL settings. On the other hand you may be able to connect from a remote IP with its current setup.
