Can't create new database


#1

On attempting to make a new MySQL database (named serpentine_weblog) I get the following error: “connect_admin failed for fin:neruda” on pressing “continue” in the web interface. Does anyone know what the problem might be?


#2

I am getting this too. I am trying to install phpBB. Could this have something to do with having the DH plugin forum installed earlier? (Forget what they were called)


#3

Yah, same error for me on creating a new mysql database. I wonder what’s up?


#4

I don’t think so. I don’t have anything installed except Movable Type. I think it’s Dreamhost’s problem.


#5

This happened to me a week or two ago. Contact support and they can fix it up (if they haven’t already).


#6

I waited a little while and tried it again (about an hour or so), and it was okay. Thanks for the tip, though!
