You need to know the host that your database is installed on.

Login to your Plesk control panel at http://yourdomain:8080/ and go to the Databases section.

The database host name is displayed in the Database Server column.

Plesk Databases

In this case your database server name for the MS SQL database would be "APU.HOSTS.NET.NZ\APU".

The MySQL database server name will be "localhost".
