Remote Database

Hey, I have a question.

I remember something about having to enable a setting for the server to allow remote connections to an outside database.

All the infomation is correct, but fails to connect, is there any setting I need to enable on the server?

Have you checked the settings for any firewall that may be in place?

I get an error:



Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 110 in /home/ventroga/public_html/mta/ucp/home.php on line 3
Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 110

Most third party hosts will block outside connections to the database.

Usually your only interested in a external connection to pass some data to a third party site for display. If this is your case you can look at doing an XML feed to the remote site.

Just a thought
