When trying to load mt-load.cgi I get the following message;
"Loading initial data into system...
An error occurred while loading data:
Connection error: Unknown MySQL Server Host 'mysql.kitchkitten.net' (2)"
I have set up the host in the Dreamhost Panel almost 2 days ago and it still is not recognising it. The Panel says it is active and I can access the phpMyAdmin interface using my username and password.
I have loaded the files in ASCII and I have changed permissions on .cgi files to 755.
Also, the Moveable Type installation on another domain which was previously working now appears to be corrupted since I have installed a new database and hostname. I can't get it to accept my old username and password. I can't get it to accept Melody/Nelson. I can't get it to accept any username / password configuration I have ever used. I have deleted all cookies and I have even tried to re-run mt-load.cgi which gets an internal server error (500) message.
I have already spent so long trying to make this work. I have read the instructions a zillion times and can barely see them anymore. I have experimented all I know how or can guess with the databases, and I have read all the forums I can find and tried all of thier suggestions and I still can't get either database to work. I am going utterly bonkas. Can anyone help - please??
