I have 2 files  for this connections and have 'include' to my page,this page works well on share hosting but now that i'm testing it on dedicated server it cannot connect ,please let me know where is the problem.
What must be mysql db address on dedicated server?

The codes in connection files:

$dbhost = '';
$dbuser = 'jamshid_mu';
$dbpass = '***';
$dbname = 'mydb';

what's the error message returned? typically it means that the connection parameters (host / user id/ password) you put in for dedicated server could be wrong.

Sorry, that page that i thought has not connection to db has connection and my problem still is the same that i have explained in question.

There are no error,a table above the page load but when codes reach to execute connection it stop,it seems that it doesn't start connection to send error.
