View Full Version : Remote access to MySQL Database

01-05-2005, 03:24 PM
I was trying to connect to a MySQL Database from a Windows
application and I couldnīt do it. I use the same application (MySQL-Front)to connect to other MySQL Databases located in other sites without a problem.

Iīm using the same user and password that I use when connecting
from my PHP scripts. I tried using the IP or the domain name as
a Host, but always fails.

Anybody has a hint about what can be happening?

Give this a look http://forums.westhost.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=98 It pertains to connecting via Dreamweaver but I think it may give you some clues. In that thread there is this link to the tutorial if you want to go straight to it to look for clues. http://www.teenawr.com/dwmx_westhost/
You have to use a secure connection to connect to the database.
