Foriegn Nameserver - no ste stats or phpMysql


#1

I have a client where the domain nameserver is controlled by a third party. I followed the instruction in http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Using_a_Foreign_Nameserver and added A records as follows
mysql.mydomain.org.au. 3600 IN A 208.113.249.58
www.mydomain.org.au. 3600 IN A 208.113.235.193

While the website works correctly I cannot access phpMyadmin or website statistics for the domain. Any thoughts on how I can fix this?

Sorry that I am not answering your specific question.

My experience is that it’s better to have your domain use Dreamhost’s nameservers. This avoids having to muck about with DNS records yourself and avoids the need for you to keep them up to date. Is there a particular reason for you not to do that?

Unfortunately email is hosted on another server and the people who host the email also maintain the DNS. All I can do is ask them to make changes to the DNS record for the domain.
