Hostnames for this MySQL server


#1

Hello

I have just created a Hostname MYSQL.domainname.co.uk and am wondering how long you have to wait to be able to click on the phpMyAdmin link and upload my database?

Cheers

Andy

5-30 min in my experience, but sometimes subdomains seem to take a looooooong time (24 hours) to propogate.

Mmmmmm thats odd then as mine still is not working.

I am a novice at this and I am trying to transfer my website from my old server. They way I was told to do this was to upload a copy of all my files then create a database and then finally transfer the domain name. Could it not be working because the domain isn’t transfered yet?

Cheers

Andy

you can set it up on dreamhosters first. i’ve never done it, but there’s an explanation in the wiki to use it as a temp before the transfer
