so I am trying to check out ruby on rails on my dreamhost account, and i cant seem to get my database configuration correct - i know the host, username and password are all correct because it works perfectly in PHP. does anyone know if there is something special that has to be done to make ruby on rails connect to mysql on dreamhost?
i also have a dedicated mysql server which when configured it works correctly, so clearly it is something related to connecting to only here at dreamhost. hoping someone has configured this and it works to help me figure out what might be the problem
support wont support 3rd party apps, so even though its a simple generic rails app (no coding by me) which wont connect to mysql when showing the app enviornment from the link on the basic ruby page.
thanks in advance for those that reply
