Okay, now I'm faced with having to fill in details I know nothing about:
How do I get these bits of information:
The Database Type - the database you will be using.
The Database server hostname or DSN - the address of the database server.
The Database server port - the port of the database server (most of the time this is not needed).
The Database name - the name of the database on the server.
The Database username and Database password - the login data to access the database.
I see that the info I need came in an email from Dreamhost!
I'll see if I can complete the install now...
Looks like the install went okay.
Now I just have to learn how to change the time-zone
and get familiar with using the thing.
