I am new to Dreamhost, and not very knoweldgeable about anything to do with PHP. I have created a new MySQL database and need to import a database from my current host, that I am moving away from.

I am told that I need to do this via MyPHP, which is how I exported the database from my soon-to-be old host.

I can not find how to gain access to MyPHP on DreamHost.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?



um, click on the link next to each database hostname in the panel that says phpMyAdmin?


I tried this but get told what I have copy and pasted below. So I guess I will have to contact dreamhost support, which I did for another problem today and I am still waiting to hear back on that…about 9-10 hours I have been waiting for a response on that issue.

I don’t think this is a DH issue. They don’t run Micro$oft IIS. Are you behind a proxy or firewall?
