Hostname not creating?

hi, so i created a hostname for a new sql database but it doesnt seem to be created (im sure i did everything correctly)… still nothing after almost 9 hours.

i sent two requests for support, once 9 hours ago and another 5 hours ago… surprisingly nothing came back.

i just switched to dreamhost and i cant really set up this host for what it’s suppose to do so, im just wondering if anyone know any solution.

11 hours, a lil more then 10 to 15 min
still doesnt work and no replies from the company

going to sleep i guess

Looks like you are stuck - you have done all you can do until Dreamhost techs look into it. It sucks, I know. On the bright side, “Sleep is good,” and tomorrow is likely to bring a fix.


Have you tried creating the database again using a different MySQL hostname? The original database request may have dropped out of the queue and not been created.


Opinions are my own views, not DreamHosts’.
I am NOT a DreamHost employee OK!! :@

You act on my advice at your own risk!

You should wait for 24 hours. It will usually work then :slight_smile:

I knew it! I knew it! I knew it wasn’t me! I’ve been fiddling with this nonsense all night feeling thick as a brick (and worse for secretly believing I wasn’t)!

Okay. So, maybe today was a bad day to sign up.

Now things work!

so my domain wasnt activated.
ok, the database seem to be created altho it says i have no privilege… i’ll need to farther test it.

if i can get throu problems uploading… “sigh”
