Once you’ve backed up the library (or opted to not worry about it and start from scratch), you’re ready to point Kodi to your My SQL server. Regardless of whether you’re editing the existing one or create a new one, cut and paste the following text into the file (note: if there are already some entries in your file, leave those in place and put these values within the correct sections): Edit the above text to reflect the IP address of your server on your LAN and the username/password of your My SQL database (in our example, it was just kodi/kodi).

When that’s done and your library is back in place, you can hop over to your My SQL command prompt and check to make sure Kodi created and populated the databases.
If the file exists, it will be in the following location, based on your OS: Check in that folder. At the my SQL comment prompt, run: (we’re not using a database for music in our example, so only our video database is appearing in the list).
