Hi There, is there a way for me to access my MySQL database to set it up before the DNS changes over?
Yes, with thanks to rlparker for showing us the trick, there is a neat little “hack” you can use while you wait for your hostname DNS to be available:
If your hostname is “mysql.yourdomain.com”, you can access it via phpmyadmin with the url:
Extra lifetime domain and $82 off with code [color=#CC0000]1DOM82[/color] or use [color=#CC0000]LM97[/color] for $97 off. Other Dreamhost coupon codes
Wholly - Use promo code WhollyMindless for full 97$ credit. Let me know if you want something else!
