MySQL Setup Before DNS Switchover?


I would like to set up my MySQL database but I cannot switch my domain name ( over to DreamHost yet. Is there a workaround to set up a database without having your domain name pointing to it yet?

When I try to do the MySQL setup, it insists that part of the database name must be my domain name. But I’m wondering if there is a workaround.

Thank you.


Add a [something] subdomain and work from that.
