Just let me create a database


#1

Hello,

I signed up with DreamHost two days ago. When I try to add a MySQL database, it says “that name is already taken.” But I don’t have any databases!

Any ideas?

that’s system wide.

Create a name that no one will think of. Remember the database name is not the host name. So don’t get too crazy about names. I name mine after singers I like :slight_smile:

I usually name things in the following format:-

myusername_dbname

makes it easier and more likely that it will be available to use
