I’m building a new site on a fresh VPS. I’ve set up the domain print-2-media.com on the VPS but don’t want to propogate the actual domain name until I’ve built the development site (obviously).
I’ve mirrored the domain at print-2-media.dreamhosters.com.
I’ve setup a mysql hostname at mysql.print-2-media.dreamhosters.com.
I’ve used the WordPress 1 click install to install WordPress on print-2-media.com.
It says the install was successful, but when I visit print-2-media.dreamhosters.com/wp-admin/install.php I get “Error establishing a database connection […] can’t contact the database server at mysql.print-2-media.com”.
I can get into PHPMyAdmin at:
and there is a print_2_media_com database (the database that was automatically generated by the 1 click install), but it contains no tables.
Anyone know what else I need to do to get the database connection recognised and finish the WordPress install?
