Hi Ben,

Couple of questions about moving our web app to silk hosting....

This app is hosted in the gis account. You set me up with a personal 
Silk account, but I'm wondering if we could/should have a Silk account 
for the gis netID. I occasionally share the gis password with employee 
who might be working on a specific application or page the gis web 
space, and I don't want to hand over ~ebuford access for that purpose.

Also, I see no mention of MySQL in the Silk User Guide. I'm assuming 
that I can seamlessly connect to an existing MySQL database from 
Silk-hosted apps, but please let me know if that is not correct (or if I 
need to know anything else about MySQL connections from Silk-hosted apps).
