I’m desperately frustrated, and hope someone can help me. I’m used to setting up mysql on Hostgator, which makes it super easy, then using Filezilla to access my database. Enter client who uses Dreamhost . . .
I set up the database yesterday via the Dreamhost control panel. I now have a mysql.mydomain.com hostname and a user set up. However, I can’t access it via FTP, PuTTy, WinSCP, or anything else. When I click on “phpmyadmin” in the dreamhost panel I get an URL not found error.
The client’s domain is registered with GoDaddy, nameservers were pointed to Dreamhost weeks ago. I plan to build a WordPress site here and if I can’t get access to the database I’m dead in the water.
