I’m using CocoaMySQL, an OS X MySQL gui manager, but I’m unable to connect to my database…
I have set the MySQL hostname (sandbox.illovich.com) and my MySQL username and password and no dice. Yes, I am using my MySQL username/password.
There are a few “optional” fields in the connection box, and I was wondering if I should be entering anything in there…
I tried specifying the actual database name (mtsql) and that didn’t help. Does anyone have any experience working with this kind of thing?
Also, as an aside… a book I’m reading has a bunch of mySQL command line examples. I tried invoking vidar:~> mysql -u illovich -p (password) on my home server and that didn’t work. I also tried SSHing to sandbox.illovich.com but that refused the SSH connection (I wasn’t surprised). Is there any way to use the mysql command line client on dreamhost?
