Well I just got a dreamhost account yesterday on refferal from some of my friends.
The main reason I got it was to use the discussion list for my organization and host a website.
I moved over my mysql database from my old site yesterday to the new one. I couldnt even use dbname.myhosname.com because it wasnt working, I had to use the long version.
That worked for a little bit last night but as of this morning the page that accesses the DB times out. All of my other subdomains seem to be working and I even have another database that is working. I also want to be able to access my database how it should be.
I hae a trouble ticket open about this right now, waiting to hear back.
