When I signed up with dreamhost, I chose mydomain.dreamhosters.com as the first domain. I then registered a domain name with another company and changed the DNS settings. I then fully hosted the domain name with dreamhost. the domain name is oldtimegems.com I then proceeded to create a mysql hostname and database for the site. The hostname was data.oldtimegems.com
So I now have the following:
I used the mydomain.dreamhosters.com folder to host the site and I had no problems. After a few days, the DNS settings went into effect. I then decided to dump all the files from mydomain.dreamhosters.com to oldtimegems.com
This time the php scrpts that connect to and read tables from data.oldtimegems.com could no longer do so. For instance at the login prompt, if I tried to login, nothing would happen. However, when I go back to mydomain.dreamhosters.com folder and try out the scripts there it works fine.
What is going on here?
Thanks for the help…
