Mysql: can access through phpadmin, cannot access from wiki software


#1

I’m getting the following error when accessing my wiki:
Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties.
Try waiting a few minutes and reloading.
(Can’t contact the database server: Unknown MySQL server host ‘dbs_awcaonline.org’ (1) (dbs_awcaonline.org))

I’ve waited and the error is not clearing up. I can access this server without a problem through phpadmin. I’m not sure why the wiki can’t see it. Help?

The database hostname you’ve entered there “dbs_awcaonline.org” is incorrect. Database hostnames should never include underscores.

Try “dbs.awcaonline.org” instead?

That was it. Thank you!
