MySQL/subdomain problem?

I’ve set up a MySQL database for some software I was going to try out. The software has a PHP script that adds the necessary tables to the database. So I’ve configured the script with the appropriate settings and run it. If I connect to the database using my shell account and show tables, I see that the tables have been created and everything seems fine.

On the other hand, if I try clicking the link in the dreamhost panel that is supposed to take me to the phpMyAdmin for the database, I can’t connect. The message I get says a server cannot be found at that address.

I have to be missing something fairly obvious. Would someone please clue me in?

I’m having the same problem. Signed up for a MySQL account and can access it from shell but not phpMyAdmin.

It seems that the database has been setup, but the DNS entry isn’t functoning yet. If it’s been less than 4 hours since you created the database, wait a bit and try again. If it’s been more, you’ll probably want to contact support and ask them to see about pushing through the DNS entry.


Yes, it’s working now. I guess the 5 to 10 minutes is not in regards to accessing phpMyAdmin. No worries, I’m just used to instant access.
