Dreamweaver MySQL Connection Error

rmb8024 asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I am trying to setup a site within Dreamweaver CS4 and I have never had so much trouble. I have successfully setup and connected to the remote and testing servers. I am now trying to add my MySQL database but continue to receive the following error:

MySQL Error#: 2013
Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 110

Using the same settings I am able to connect to the database using Navicat for MySQL. Ideas?

This is usually a straight forward process but this is my first attempt to do this using Rackspace Cloud as my host.
