I've never really used databases before, except playing around with them for fun with PHP. Now I'm trying to coordinate with the web developer who built our site and created a user database. He does not work on site, rather he's in a whole other state. I have access to the website's DNS host - Godaddy, and the web host Arvixe. On Arvixe I can see the database. However I have people who need to be added in, on the spot sometimes. I'm not sure how to connect. I've tried downloading Microsoft SQL Server 12, following the Arvixe instructions. Then I put in the webpage's URL, the Arvixe username and password and attempted to connect... nothing. I'm not really sure where to go from here. Any pointers would be useful.
