In response to an earlier post, haggis suggested the following for editing the pMachinePro config.php file:
// HOST NAME OR SERVER ADDRESS
$hostname = “mysql.yourdomain.com”;
So I entered “mysql.stevegerber.com” since stevegerber.com is my domain name.
// MySQL USERNAME
$dbusername = “username_you_chose_for_database”;
So I entered “SGerber”, which is the username I chose for the database.
// MySQL PASSWORD
$dbpassword = “password_you_chose_for_database”;
So I entered the password that I use to access the database from the mySQL page on the Dreamhost Control Panel.
// DATABASE NAME
$dbname = “name_you_chose_for_database”;
So I entered “gerblog”, which is the name of the database.
But when I run pMachine’s installation script, it tells me:
“Could not establish a connection to your database.”
Anybody have any idea what I’m doing wrong?
All suggestions appreciated!
