Support Requests / Re: Help!! Account suspended!!

Apparently my account went over quota, but I wasn't sent an email to let me know (the terms of use say an email will be sent). Anyway, seems my account has been reactivated (at 117% of my quota...) and I will just pay to upgrade my account. Crisis over! Thanks to admin or whoever reactivated the account.
Support Requests / Help!! Account suspended!!

I just went to login to my account and it says it has been suspended. The site also doesn't work. It is extremely important that I access the files and databases stored on my account. Can admin please contact me ASAP at to sort this out. This is very urgent.

Each of the databases is for a different project, so all are required. I will dump them when I have some time one day so they all run on the new server. Cheers.

Ever heard of table prefixes?  You could have one database with 113 different prefixes

With different usernames and passwords for each prefix?

113 databases wow no wonder the server is running slow, sort it out man.

Can't see how having multiple databases slows the server... if I had one database with a thousand tables being hit hundreds of times it's the same amount of traffic as a hundred databases being hit once, isn't it?
OK - thanks for the info.
On the new database server, a database called information_schema is visible in PHPMyAdmin. Is it possible to hide this database (since it can't be edited anyway...)?

I see. I have a lot of databases on the old localhost server and now some on the new server - I would prefer them all to run on the same server. Is there a simple way to transfer all my databases on the old server to the new server (without stuffing them up)?
Thank you - it works now. Is there any way to create databases on the old localhost server?
I just created 4 databases on the new server, but when I click on the MG link next to them and enter the username and password, the username and password is not accepted and I am denied access. I have checked the username and password carefully and I am definitely entering it correctly. Is there a problem with the server? Also, is there any way to create new databases on the old localhost server?

Please use the Contact Form and we will see if these databases actually exist.

Thanks - I have sent the details of the databases and username/password to access them through the contact form.
Although I shouldn't be able to create a database from within PHPMyAdmin, when I log in there is the option to create a database with ? in the name. All my normal databases begin with podunkso_ and then a name, for example podunkso_test. However, I have accidentally created some databases on the PHPMyAdmin home page after logging in that have ? instead of _, for example, podunkso?test. They show up in the drop down of databases in PHPMyAdmin but do not show up from within the FreePgs system control panel, so I can't delete them. How do I delete these phantom databases? If I can't do it myself, can someone at FreePgs delete all databases from my account that have a ? in the name please? I would prefer to know how to do it myself though in case another one is accidentally created.

Does the FreePgs MySQL database server allow databases to be created using PHP (as in, mysql_query("CREATE DATABASE Whatever")...)? If so, can I specify a different username and password for the created database(s) than my login?
