This opens the Database Setup Wizard page. Fill in the following details to configure sql server.
Server Type: Select the server type from the combo box. Say MS SQL, MY SQL.
Host Name: The IP Address/host name in which the database is available. The default host name is 'localhost'.

MY SQL Connection Resolution
Verify the following,
Check if MY SQL server is running.
Check if the server name or the port number is misspelled or incorrect.
If MY SQL server is running in a remote machine then there may be a firewall blocking the port number you have entered.
If none of the above mentioned issues matches then contact your system administrator.
MS SQL Connection Resolution
If a connection is refused and an exception is thrown by SQL Server as 'Unable to connect the server' then the reason for this could be,
The server name is misspelled or the port number is incorrect.
The SQL server was not configured to use TCP/IP. In this case, enable TCP/IP from SQL servers network utility application.
If there is a firewall blocking the port 1433 on the server then you will not be able to connect to the server.
To confirm the firewall block connect to TCP/IP use \"telnet<server_host>1433\"\n to confirm the block.
You can connect to SQL Server named instantly if you know the machine name and port number.
