I have several php accounts in a reseller package.  I am trying to move some code from one machine to another.  I believe that I need to do something with an access host to allow my code on the new server to access the database on the old one.  What should I do?  I tried adding an access host, but I am not sure what I am doing.

Your mysql server has to grant privileges for the queries to the new host with the code.
I am not sure what mysql management interface you're using, so I am unsure what specific advice to give you.

What do I use as a host name?  Do I just ping the server and use it's ip?  Is there a php script that I can run to get info?  I don't use a mysql management tool.  I am just running php code against it.

you use the name of server running the php script as the mysql server sees it.
Can you ssh between from php server to mysql server?
