I want to separate my database to be in a separate data server. Below is the current connection string on my local database (it's a working one).
<add name="MySqlConn" connectionString="Database=kudodb;Data Source=localhost;User Id=root;Password=root;charset=utf8" providerName="System.Data.MySql"/>

I'd tried on below and it's not working (xxx.xx.xx.xx = data server ip address).
<add name="MySqlConn" connectionString="Database=kudodb;Data Source=xxx.xx.xx.xx,3306;User Id=root;Password=root;charset=utf8" providerName="System.Data.MySql"/>

Any idea? Do i need to set permission also on the MySQL database?
