MySQL Connect To Another Server

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am wanting to connect to the MySQL database of another server, however, it keeps timing out all the time. I have the correct username and password etc and im using host:port etc.

Could you tell me why this is happening? And what could i do about it please?

Cheers

Dane

Are you sure that you're even allowed to connect remotely to this other database?

Basically, you need to see if "-skip-networking" is enabled or not, and how named pipes are set up.
