connecting to e remote MySQL server ?
Posted on 2002-03-21
Hello all ,
The whole story :
I have a VBulletin Forum on a sever ... The Forum Database is VERY large now .
My hosting company had some problems that let me lose my domain name :( ... and now I don't have Telnet access to my old site .
I can log in to the FTP and I can access my database from PHPMyAdmin .
I want to transfer the database to a new sever .
I did that before using mysqldump .
But the problem now is that tha database is huge so I can't transfer it to my PC the to the new server (I could't compress it because I no longer have a telnet acces , and no longer have access to my old Control Panel) .
I have an idea : I want to connect to my old server using PHP - MySQL and then I can use The Forums Control Panel a make a back-up of the database as a file.sql
then I can solve the problem .
BUT : I couldn't connect to the remote server . I get the folloing error :
Host 'my.new.IP' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server .
Any one can help ? :( (200 points)
