I have had an account for almost two years now and I have finally started to actually create my site. For some reason I never actually initially set up my database on here so now I am at that point. On other sites I have created, this is typically pretty easy and I am sure it is with Dreamhost as well it is just something I may not be used to.
Anyway I created a new database and didn't have any hostnames created to use so I added one around 10:00 EST last night. The problem I am having is that the hostname is not showing up under the myql server section in manage MySql.
I tried creating another one and that isn't showing up either. I am able to access myphpadmin through the url that was provided when I originally created the database. That url however wasn't hostname.domain.com and I am not able to access it that way yet.
If I were to create a new database the two hostnames that I created are available options to select so I know that dreamhost has them.
My question are:
Is it just taking awhile for the hostname to propagate?
I am assuming the url to access phpmyadmin is going to be hostname.domain.com where hostname is the hostname I created and domain is the domain of my site?
I am building my site using php and I usuall access a database a certain way using localhost as the hostname. Here it is a little different I would assume in order to connect to the database here I would use the same thing to connect to the sql server here as as I would to access the database in a web browser, meaing hostname.domain.com?
I have created a table in the database and the code works on my computer but when I uploaded the actual pages to my site I receive the following error: Unknown MySQL server host.
The only thing that is changing between my computer and the server is the host of the mysql server so what am I doing wrong? or is it taking longer then expected to propagate the hostname?
Please any help anyone could give would be greatly appreciated.
