When I try to connect to my database on DreamHost using Dreamweaver, I get an error that says “An unidentified error has occurred.”.
On my local XP (SP2) machine I have dreamweaver 6.1, MySQL server 5.0, Putty .058, And Navicat (MySQL Gui) 7.2.9. I am running ZoneAlarm antivirus (but disabling it didn’t make any difference), and Webroot SpySweeper.
I can successfully connect to that database from my PC using Navicat using SSH, so I know the correct pieces and configuration and connections should be in place.
I barely know what I am doing here, and couldn’t guess whether the problem is pilot error, a problem on the DreamHost side or a problem on my PC. The smart money is on pilot error.
I have given the userid full “%” permission to the db.
I have Googled, looked through the DH wiki, worked with the dreamweaver knowledge base, and nothing I try works.
I reported it to DH support, and they directed me here.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!
