MySQL Access from another host?


#1

Is it possible to access a MySQL DB hosted on DreamHost from another Host/IP ? (without using SSH)
Is there somewhere I can setup IP Access from another host?

You see the issue I am having is my site that is hosted with another host just upgraded from MySQL 4 to MySQL 5, which has totally HOSED my site; my DreamHost account uses MySQL 4, and I wanted to see if I can point my site to the MySQL DB that is hosted @ DreamHost, is this possible?
