Thread: Connection Setting From Another Server

  1. #1

    Afrostyle Connection Setting From Another Server

    I want to establish connection in one of my website1 database, how can I establish connection to that database coming from my website2 hosted in different server.

    The following is my default connection settings in my website1, Im thinking of changing the localhost to something like but the following error is shown

    Access denied for user 'myusername'@'' (using password: YES)

    $dbservername = "localhost";
    $dbusername = "myusername";
    $dbpassword = "mypassword";
    $defaultdb = "mydatabase";
    $cn = mysql_connect($dbservername,$dbusername,$dbpasswor d) or die("connection error ".mysql_error());
    $db = mysql_select_db($defaultdb);

    Make sure when you create the user for website2 on website1's database you tell it to allow authentication from that IP address.

    To allow connections from certain IP:
    grant all on database.* to 'user'@'' identified by 'password'
    To allow connections from anywhere:
    grant all on database.* to 'user'@'%' identified by 'password'
    Then always remember to flush it:
    flush privileges
