Thank you for your prompt response Scott.
Essentially what I did was change the hostname in the config.php file (the file that connects to the MySQL database) so that there was no database for it to connect to, and it takes less than a second for it to tell me that “its unable to connect to the database”. So to me, it seems as if it IS an issue with the database server or w/e.
Like I said, I’ve used this script several times, and usually the database host = “localhost”, this, however, does not work as I have to create a host for the database that USES MY DNS (MySQL.ClaneF.org), so the database connects to that, and is in turn, very very very very very very slow. The website should load at the speed of, or even FASTER THAN, www.OverDoseD.net
Is there something I can do to fix this, or is it something the DH team would have to fix on their side?
