I'm migrating a site to a new dedicated server on Dreamhost.
Before I make the DNS request, I need to make sure that my VBulletin forums are working correctly on the new server.
So, I setup a db through the Dreamhost control panel, but it's bound to a machone called mysql. Since the DNS has not been transferred, that name does not resolve.
Is there a way I can access the mysql database from a shell, without using the name? There's got to be someone else who has needed to do this.
Thanks ahead of time.
