Mysql hosting for others


#1

Am i allowed to host a DB for another site that is not hosted by dreamhost.

I keep receiving connection errors when i try to connect.

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘208.113.129.204’ (4)

(i tried using the IP address in hope that would have worked, but it doesn’t look like it did… )

Thanks,
Matt

You need to use your database’s hostname. You might also need to modify your database user and add your other site to the allowed hosts.

Very little to do with either emus or farmers!

You will need to. Add allowed hostname(s), with wildcards if wanted, or IP, under Goodies, MySQL, user edit (click the name), Allowable hosts.
