DB Name is already taken/ error on any name


#1

DB Name “insert anything here” is already taken by another user (or you).

I get his message when I try to make a database by any name. I filed a support ticket but was hoping someone here would know why this occurs.

the DB names need to be unique across all Dreamhost accounts (or at least that host). Try a non standard name. I used to add my initials to all my DB names.

The User name needs to be almost as Equaly unique, although you can use the same username for multiple DBs.

OMG I’ve tried phpbb1 and even the simple “A” those didn’t work… but I tried one more time after reading your post and come up with something else and that worked… thanks a lot for the quick reply.

I always put my account name in front, like “yourname_dbname”. That way, I’m sure it’s unique.
