So, I have the VPS hosting option, and pay 15$/mo (which is the minimum). I’ve already bound two domains to this hosting account, and the web-sites are active.
Now, I would like to configure a mySQL database. However, when I click on “MySQL databases” from the Toolbox (top left in the Dreamhost panel), it says that I cannot add a database because I have no active hosting plans.
This appears to be true, however, I’m not sure what that means, since my VPS hosting option is active (and I pay it monthly, as I said). This VPS hosting doesn’t constitute a “hosting plan”? Or what?
I clicked on “Add a plan” from the panel, and I was offered a “Happy Hosting plan”. Do I need this? (It’s like 10$/mo) I mean, I have the VPS hosting option. Shouldn’t I be able to add databases to it?
