So, I had a MySQL database working this morning had Wordpress installed but lost the password. I deleted the database and created a new one about 20-25 minutes ago with the exact same host/user/name/pass details so I wouldn’t have to change my wp-config file. It still isn’t working. Any ideas besides wait a little longer (unless I really do need to but it said 5-10 minutes)
See if you can access the database by the hostname (something.domain.com). If it asks you for your name and password, it should be okay and ready to use. If it doesn’t come up yet, you’ll just have to wait it out.

Yeah, that’s still not up. Why does everything take so long to happen here?
I don’t know why it says it will take 5-10 minutes for the database to be up and working. That has NEVER been the case for me and I’ve made a few of them on the domains that I host here. It takes at least 45 minutes to an hour most of the time.
I have installed a few boards and CMSs last days using “one-click” install and everytime the DBs were up in less than 5 min even during the day! They are not reachable through phpMyAdmin though, that usually takes around 24h.
I read a sugestion from someone here on the boards and found it very usefull: for each domain you host here, create a few DBs as standby, like that when you need one, you will be working full power in no time.
