Hey guys, just a pre-emptive apology for my lack of knowledge. Dreamhost was recommended to me from a few close friends who do small sites on the side for local businesses.
I signed up about a month and a half ago, just to experiment, and to create a portal for my close friends that share the same hobbies as me.
I had everything up and running, and decided to start over, so I completely removed everything from my domain directory. I uploaded about 10mb of files for the new layout, etc…and coincidentally now I am having a few problems.
Using the dreamhost panel to log in to my mysql database is intermittently not letting me in, and when I use the panel to login to the ftp, I can download, view, and edit all files, but when I try to open, I just get the dreaded “Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at gatorade.dreamhost.com.” message.
All I did was upload the entire PHPnuke Platinum 7.06. Now, when browsing to my domain (www.kentuckyonlinegaming.com), you see “There seems to be a problem with the MySQL server, sorry for the inconvenience. We should be back shortly.” I should be getting the web based install instead…
Any clues on what to do here? Just can’t figure out if its a problem caused by me, or if I need to send in a ticket to the dreamhost staff.
PS. If you haven’t guessed from the subject line, I’m on the gatorade server.
