i tried to install adsensegold and was prompted for the MySQL server host name? was told to put in localhost but it did not work.

can anyone help?


You need to put in the hostname of the MySQL database you created in the Control Panel->Goodies->Manage MySQL page of the control panel. If you have not yet created such a database, you need to do so, as the DH MySQL system does not allow you to create a database programatically (for instance, from within an install script).

If you forgot the hostname of the database, the link above will display your database, and their information.

It will not be “localhost” on Dreamhost.
Good Luck!



many thanks!!
