I am not able to get access to one of my databases through Dreamhost. It randomly gives me an error when I select the database through phpmyadmin:
2013 - Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 111
I have tried adding my local IP address as referred to here: http://discussion.dreamhost.com/thread-116616.html
This didn't do anything, as I'm only accessing through the Dreamhost Phpmyadmin (though I ssh'd in and that failed as well). I restored the database using Dreamhost's webpanel, and that did not register any errors.
What is happening, and how can I fix this? Currently the entire website is offline and not connecting to the database.
