MT install problem


#1

I can’t seem to get past the mt-load step in installing Movable Type. I’ve been following the wombatnation instructions, and I’m out of ideas. This is what I get:

Loading initial data into system…

An error occurred while loading data:

Connection error: Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘mysql.xxxxxxxx.net’ (111)

I created the subdomain, I created a database, I created a database user, I created a password that I put in the mt-db-pass.cgi.

I put the domain and database name into mt.cfg.

Arghh. Any ideas? I’m thinking of starting from scratch, delete everything.

Has the database hostname propagated through DNS yet? It takes sometime before a database can be accessed through its hostname. In my experience less than 4 hours.
