Batman Server/Towelie MySQL Server


#1

Hi, I registered with dreamhost last night but I’ve been having some problems with the MySQL server. I’ve submitted a support ticket and tried to be patient (only submitted 10 hours ago before going to bed lol) but I figured I’d see if anyone else has had these problems / managed to fix it themselves if at all possible.

Basically my site is built around Joomla, and I can’t even begin to set it up until the database works - so you see where I am with this. I get to the MySQL page in the Joomla setup - enter the hostname, db name, username and password (triple checked all these lots of times) - hit enter… and I suspect it times out? well I get a 500 internal server error… and it takes minutes to load the phpmyadmin page…

Is it to do with my MySQL server? is it new / experiencing problems? I see nothing in the status pages or anything.

Thanks lots

**Edit: I also tried the php code suggested in a topic below to check the php - loads in seconds.

<?php echo phpinfo(); echo "\n"; ?>

That would indded indicate SQL problems. You’ll need to wait for Support to get on it.

Turn on WP-Cache (or WP Super Cache) in your Plugins and Settings section of the wp-admin page. That will significantly speed up your site.

My website, located at www.clanef.org, takes FOREVER to load. It is running the same scripts as www.overdosed.net.

It is a simple clan management script that connects to a MySQL database.

It seems that the database itself it taking forever to be connected to. I understand that there can be some lag, however, I have installed these scripts on several different webservers, and it usually takes 0.3 seconds to load a page.

It is currently taking anywhere between a minute to 5 to load one page. Sometimes it even times out. Can someone help me fix this?

Thanks!

and P.S

Yes, It is on “Batman//Towelie”.

Seems theres a few of us! have you got any tickets open on the subject? I wouldnt mind so much if it was just a small part of my site… but ive had a full free day I was planning on working on this - and its been squandered because of this problem as I havent been able to make a start at all. Just hope its up and running soon, not a very good start to a new dreamhost customer. Specially with a 19 hour ticket unreplied too.

still unreplied to… I am wondering what the process is for getting my money back. This is kind of ridiculous. I need this working ASAP so I can get all of my members registered, before they all disappear on me. I hope the answer comes soon!


#11

Problem fixed, thanks admin!


#12

Spoke too soon… ah well lasted an hour lol. Getting 503 errors and the occasional 505’s.


#13

Yeah, it worked for about 30 mins, and then crashed even worse… I want my money back, this is insane.
