MySQL Chef Recipe - app folder name with reserved characters breaks

I found that if you create an application whose folder name has reserved MySQL characters in it (most notably "-"), it breaks the MySQL recipe.


Not sure if this is an ey-local bug per-se, but figured I'd post it here first.

Hi Jeremy, Here's the update - 

This is not an issue specific to Engine Yard Local, but rather the MySQL recipe, which does not allow dashes. EY Local does not edit or warn if you create an app folder with a dash. Moving this bug to known issues in forums.

thanks again, kjm
