I only created a connection from Dreamweaver.  Do I also have to create a connection from the server panel online? I will have to look to see how to do this, is it done form MyPhp Admin?

Check the connection script on the remote server and confirm that the correct password and user is specified... My password and user on my localhost server is different from that on the live server on my hosting account.

Even the smallest typing error in the connection script can kill the entire connection process.

I have the two differnt login;s defined, i actually think that the db server path is the problem.  my isp ip address and login work but when it takes the next step to find the db, it can not.  the db server ip address is stated differnt on mysql admin page.  and when I go to file manager either throught my ftp program or file manager at godaddy, i do not see the database.

Ah-ha....GoDaddy strikes again :)

Yes, that is most likely the problem.  You should contact GoDaddy support and make sure your account is set up to be able to use a remote connection to the MySQL server.

Yes, I crossed that bridge. Had to create a new database and check the yes box since you can only do this when you create, then back up from original and restore to new.  But i will try tech support again, I have yet to get the correct person to know the mysqul issues and then I get that they don't support 3rd party software schtick when the person doesnt know.  Any other suggetsions?

Don't host with GoDaddy?

I've seen this before and it is almost always a config issue on their side.

I conquer with jason1178... GoDaddy seems to make it part of there mission to make everything difficult. So many issues that people have with hosting seem to be related to GoDaddy...

Find a new hosting service... the savings in time spent on problem solving alone will be worth the switch...

A simple search on Google will yield hundreds of pages of web hosting services...

Good luck.

Good place to register a domain.  Baaaaad place to host it.

I'm partial to Dreamhost.  About the same price as GoDaddy hosting but way more bang for the buck.  However, they did just suffer a major outage yesterday so if things like that make you squemish...
