I have created a database for my SS installation, but my host's server creates my domain as follows...
I cannot change anything before the ss, as that is pre-determined by the server. no matter what I type for the database name, the server populates this mydomain_net_-_ and then whatever I type in as the database name.
The problem is when I get to the SS install page and enter the database name, the dash between the underscores disappears and then it tells me that the database does not match. It looks like this after I click on "Re-Check Requirements" - mydomain_net__ss
It seems that SS does not recognize dashes and my host server or MySQL host creates databases with dashes. Does anyone know how I can work around this?
