Database config on Codeigniter

Hi,

I'm trying to connect to a database server that has a static IP.
If you do it with pgsql3 software works fine, but it doesn't work if you try with the Codeigniter database library.
It doesn't shows any errors, only a white page on everything that is on the same controller (the one which I'm using for the database connection).

Regards!

First try some simple script way whether db is connected with hosting ip
<?php

$dbconn = pg_connect("host=sheep port=5432 dbname=mary user=lamb password=foo");

if (!$dbconn) {
  echo "An error occurred.\n";
  exit;
}

Hi

I've tried with the simple php connection and it worked (the one you used above). In my Codeigniter there's a library for postgres and i got no errors for that.

Is there anything else that I should check?

Regards!

did you enable this to view the errors?
 ini_set('display_errors', '1');
error_reporting(E_ALL);

Hi,

My connection has the same options that the one you used above, with the exception that my Database is in a remote server (not localhost). Is there any other thing that I should check?

Hi!

Thanks, with the ini_set I got the error and fixed it!
I was only using the error_reporting(E_ALL);

Thank you!
