how to work with a remote mysql database ??

I got two servers: "www.grupossc.com" with linux and "www.pvtcloudlab.com" with windows

in pvtcloudlab.com the page load his own database but also the mysql databse located in "www.grupossc.com", most of the time the system works without problems, but from time to time the page show you this error:
Warning: mysql_connect(): A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\pvtcloudlab.com\httpdocs\users\Connections\dbnotes1.php on line 16

Fatal error: in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\pvtcloudlab.com\httpdocs\users\Connections\dbnotes1.php on line 16

Open in new window


that error reffers to this line:
$dbnotes1 = mysql_connect($hostname1, $username1, $password1) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
<?php
# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_dbnotes = "localhost";
$database_dbnotes = "xxxxxx";
$username_dbnotes = "xxxxxx";
$password_dbnotes = "xxxxxx";
$dbnotes = mysql_connect($hostname_dbnotes, $username_dbnotes, $password_dbnotes) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR); 


$hostname1 = "www.grupossc.com";
$database1 = "xxxxxx";
$username1 = "xxxxxx";
$password1 = "xxxxxx";
$dbnotes1 = mysql_connect($hostname1, $username1, $password1) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
?>

Open in new window

Are you sure the server  with Linux works correctly...have checked if this is an network connectivity issue....is logging for MySQL working?

hi john thx for your time.

As far as i know all work ok, this problems sometimes emerges when i try to connect the base in pvtcloudlab.com from grupossc.com
John Tsioumpris

The "sometimes" points to something between pvtcloudlab and grupossc...i don't think its MySQL's fault...to ensure that there are several stress test floating on the Internet...
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
