Hah! You know, I checked the spam folder before I posted AND I ran a search, and of course, I didn't find it until you told me to look. Stupid brain-y pattern recognition software. Stupid Gmail. Thanks again!

Ahhh, I don't think I ever got the e-mail with the info. Did you send it to my Gmail address, or my existing Xepher webmail? I meant to say something before, but I've been super distracted for the past week. Please to be giving me the info? Thanks.

I already have my portfolio site here on Xepher, which I'm very happy with, but I'd like to get a separate account for an ongoing webcomic project I'm going to start in January.

desired username: girlbot

e-mail: jinxville at gmail dot com

current site:

sample strips:

The Intrepid Girlbot would, at least initially, update twice a week. I don't have a set storyline in mind. It's sort of an experimental idea. I'm just going to see where it takes me. I've already gotten some interesting ideas of where to take it.

Fesworks told me that I could allocate a domain for this from my current account, but I'd kind of like to keep them separate. It seems like it would be neater. If you don't feel that it's worth the trouble to set up a new account, I could try Fes's method.

Ah, well that was unnecessarily confusing. Anyway, I got the connection, but there's a shiny, new error message: "ERROR: MySQL connection successful, but cannot access database named 'superhappy-funtimes'"

Should I just try again later?

Okay, I quadruple checked the info I entered and tried the password changing thing. Still getting this error:

"ERROR: Could not connect to MySQL database with supplied information.
DB: Access denied for user 'superhappy-funti'@'localhost' (using password: YES)"

I entered the info thusly:

Database Hostname: localhost   

Database Name: superhappy-funtimes

Database Username: superhappy-funti

Database Password: (my normal password)

First off, I hope an oekaki board is okay. Let me know if there's any limits I should put on it.

So I'm running the install for Wacintaki Poteto, an up-to-date oekaki client. I fill in the MySQL info as it says in the Xepher help section, but I get denied access. Any help? I'm probably missing something really obvious again.

Thanks! I feel like an idiot for not thinking of just logging in to my account to change the password. Anyway, it totally works now, so I'm happy.

I know passwords aren't optional, but I don't seem to use one when I log in with my SCP program, so I have no idea what password to use. Please PM me my actual password? And no, I haven't been hitting it five times at once. Two or three failed attempts in a five hour span is plenty for me.

Argh, still getting the same error message. What's the right thing to put in the password field. I've just been putting in my username. If I can give it a password, maybe it'll authorize.

Triple-checked, and yes, this is the SFTP setting.

Edit: Changed the path to "public_html/uncanny" but got the same error message.

Edit #2: Did some googling, and it looks like some people have fixed authorization errors by making sure that PasswordAuthentication was turned on in their sshd_configs. I don't really understand what that means, but maybe it'll help?

Hm, okay. I tried it with the SFTP settings, and the authorization failed, apparently. I think it may just be a password issue. With my SCP program, I don't even have to enter a password to long on -- which I've been wondering about -- so I don't know what you put in that field. Here's the info as I entered it (or as Blogger automatically entered for me in a couple of spots):

FTP Server:
Blog URL:
FTP Path:
Blog Filename: index.html
Feed Filename: atom.xml

And then my username and password. The username I'm sure about. The password, not so much, as I stated above. Any ideas?
Hosting Q&A / Blogger?

Hey, I'm gearing up to put up a whole new design for my site. This includes a new art/news blog via Blogger. I was able to do this pretty easily when I was on Dreamhost, but I know Xepher operates somewhat differently. It says it can use SFTP to post, which would probably work, right? I just want to know how to get it set up well before I start hacking the new design together.

So are there any special instructions to getting Blogger to work on Xepher?

Coooollll. Thanks! I'll finish getting this set up, and I'll let you know if I have any problem on this end, which I doubt I will.
Hosting Q&A / Domain allocation?
March 14, 2008, 11:05:20 PM
Not sure exactly where to post this, but this forum looks good. I'm finally making the switch from Dreamhost to Xepher, so I'd like "" set as my domain for my account, "" Also, any idea how long before I can notify GoDaddy about the nameservers? I've never switched hosting before. Fesworks has been very helpful on the subject, but I'm nervous about downtime disrupting my (very meager) traffic flow.

Thanks in advance!
