Since I’ve had a ticket open for 15 hours without a response, and my site has been down for three days, I figured I would post my problem at the forum.
I am trying to import a mysql database that I uploaded to the root directory of my website. I created a mysql host name. I also created the “container” database where the sql file will be imported.
I can log into this database using PHPMYADMIN and also through shell access. So I know my user name and pass are working properly. However, when I try to import my DB using the following shell command (actual values have been replaced), I get the following error:
[grand]$ mysql -h mysql.mydomainame.com -u myusername -p dreamhostdb_name <
ERROR 1044 (42000) at line 12: Access denied for user
’myusername’@‘188.8.131.52/255.255.224.0’ to database ‘myusername_name’
For some reason, it tries to connect to a database ‘myusername_name’ which is an amalgamation of my user name and the last part of my database name. It is a database that does not and should not exsist.
I am really stumped. I have exported and imported DB’s using DH’s shell access on another account without any problems.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
