View Full Version : Access MySQL database from another server

09-15-2008, 08:07 AM
I always used my "localhost" MySQL server, but with an old computer as a server I can't use MySQL anymore (RAM lags) only Apache.
Now I'm used to "localhost" as my MySQL server I don't know another way to interact with another server.
I want to contact a database on funpic.org, but how do I do this? The account itself is Josti with the URL of http://josti.jo.funpic.org.
Thanks in advance, for I've got my vBulletin license now and I'm desperate to test it.

For host in your MYSQL connection string you put in the IP of the MySQL server.

Then, you need to edit your MySQL server permissions to allow connections from the other location, or you can use a % to indicate a wildcard to allow connections from all hosts.

Thank you! I haven't got the time to do it now, but I'll try it later on.
