Mysql ip address?


#1

Hello,

I am trying to create a MYSQL database for a design tool,

Slingshot (a grasshopper plugin for rhino)
http://slingshot-dev.wikidot.com/grasshopper-mysql-tutorials
I can not seem to find a way to acquire the IP address of my MYSQL database on DreamHost. where is it hiding?

I have an IP address for the website the MYSQL database is related to, but that doesn’t seem to find anything. Any help is much appreciated.

thanks,
Ben

CHeck here https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=goodies.mysql&

to locate the hostname. You should be using the hostname rather than an IP address because the IP address is subject to change at any time, but if you must have an IP address just take a hostname and resolve it with nslookup from your shell account, just be aware that when it breaks it is probably because the IP address changed.
