I am currently using iPage to host a site I am developing. I am having a problem though with a connection to the MySQL server using Kohana. I am including the error message and my current database configuration in this message. I know it might just be a MySQL error given the error message, but I though I would include that I'm using Kohana just in case. I have contacted iPage to ask them about it, but their customer support is abysmal at best and it seemed that they really didn't have any idea what I was talking about, although I did manage to confirm that localxingcom.ipagemysql.com was the correct server address. Unfortunately I can't include a link to the site as it is currently password protected and under development. I'm hoping that what I'm including will be enough information to at least steer me in the right direction. Thanks in advance.
