Hi

 i have a static IP address they have been granted remote access giving me details shown below

We have now granted access to the "mysql1-remote.mylogin.ie" server from the 89.101.172.46 IP address as requested.  You should now be able to make remote connections over port 3306 using MySQL client software.

I am having problems with connecting to Mysql can anyone help

All the information i have entered is below.

 
Local Info

     Sitename                buildingbids

When i go to test the connection i get a message saying an unidentified error has occured.

 
My connbuildingbids code is

<?php

# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_connbuildingbids = "mysql1.mylogin.ie";
$database_connbuildingbids = "buildingbids";
$username_connbuildingbids = "buildingbids";
$password_connbuildingbids = "*********";
$connbuildingbids = mysql_pconnect($hostname_connbuildingbids, $username_connbuildingbids, $password_connbuildingbids) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
?>

 
My connection criteris is

Connection name     connbuildingbids

MySql Server          mysql1.mylogin.ie

Username               buildingbids

Password               *************

Database               buildingbids

 
Any help would be great thanks

I want to setup my PC so i can access this database through Dreamweaver but i don't know how to i have set up everything in DW as shown above but i know i need to assign the port and IP address and i dont know how to do this.  

I was also given this comment but i don't know what to do here.
If you are behind a firewall, or have firewall/anti-malware software on your computer, you may need to configure it to pass the requests from your client through!

Can someone help me
Thanks

>>"mysql1-remote.mylogin.ie" server from the 89.101.172.46 IP address as

they have granted access to host or to an ip address ? whats the ip address of  mysql1-remote.mylogin.ie ?

try with this:


<?php
$link = mysql_connect($hostname_connbuildingbids, $username_connbuildingbids, $password_connbuildingbids);
if (!$link) {
    die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
}
echo 'Connected successfully';
mysql_close($link);
?>

Hi

I have gone to a different server and now my code is like this

My connbuildingbids code is

<?php
# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_connbuildingbids = "bono.hostireland.com";
$database_connbuildingbids = "buildingbids";
$username_connbuildingbids = "buildingbids";
$password_connbuildingbids = "*********";
$connbuildingbids = mysql_pconnect($hostname_connbuildingbids, $username_connbuildingbids, $password_connbuildingbids) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
?>

 
My connection criteris is

Connection name     connbuildingbids

MySql Server          bono.hostireland.com

Username               buildingbids

Password               *************

Database               buildingbids


I get a different error now it says Mysql error #:1045  access denied for Buildingbids@localhost (Password:Yes)  so it looks like its looking locally for the database by default and i cant stop it.  I did orriginally have MySql set up on my pc and had done some test databases but i have deleted everything now even MySql but i still get this error so i am missing something.  Does anyone know why or how can i stop it defaulting locally. Thanks

Hi

I have remote access they have granted it to me through my static IP.  I put in the correct host name but it always defaults to localhost.  I think i need to clear port 3306 but i don't know how to do this.

I have opted for a different way just using local host and editing it on their server there is a problem with my pc configuration thats not letting me gain access, but thanks for all your help.
