Can't access PhpMyAdmin


#1

I set up a new database for my website, but when I go to the hostname (using the link provided on the DreamHost page that says I successfully created a database) I get a “Server not found” error.

Any idea why this would be happening?

You may need to wait a while because it takes few minutes for new database to be available.

If you still can’t access your database, I guess only DH support is able to solve the problem.

Yeah, it sounds like DNS has to update for the host to be reachable with a browser.

there is a neat little “hack” you can use while you wait for your hostname DNS to be available.

If your hostname is “mysql.yourdomain.com”, you can access it via PhpMyAdmin with the url:

http://www.dreamhost.com/dh_phpmyadmin/mysql.yourdomain.com/

This can sometimes be very useful for doing data imports during a site migration, or other “hands-on” mysql management.
