Mysql & other databases - Edit Drop-Down List

I'm having an issue updating a drop-down list on a website. I'm very new to PHP and MySQL, but I'm determined to fix this problem. I need to change a couple fields in a drop-down list, but they don't appear in the code for the site. I'm guessing it's pulling the list from the MySQL server, but I have almost no knowledge of how to access that. I don't have the root password for MySQL, and I didn't create the website so I don't know the names given to anything I need to edit. I'm not entirely sure if that's descriptive enough, but I just don't know where to start. Is there a way for me to access the field and change it from the internet or is there something I need to access in MySQL?

Thanks for any help!
-Shane

Where to begin

Hi,

You'll need to obtain the hostname, username and password for MYSQL for the site you want to access and if you want to edit any tables you will need a tool to do so or write a script.

If you have access you could upload a tool like phpMyAdmin onto the site, configure it using the MySQL co-ordinates, and then you will be able to access the tables in the database and edit them.

I hope this helps but it's not very clear what you are trying to do.
