  • How to use a remote MYSQL server?

    I am getting ready for a move of sites and would like to use the MYSQL from the new dedicate server we got before I actually move the site over. So can I setup in the config file for it to connect to an IP instead of localhost and if so what ports do I need opened for in and out to make this happen? Anything else I need to know? Running mysql-3.23.55-1ct if that matters. TIA.

    You can try setting thwe IP but for this to work the remote server will need to be configured to allow connections from your server.

      Thank you, I tried the IP already and it didn't work. Could you give me a pointer in what to read to set up the acceptance?

        No sorry I don't have the first clue on how to do this.

          Thank you for the help. If anyone knows how to do this, am I on the right track that this is how to setup permission?

            I may be talking in the wrong direction but

            my vbulletin connects to a host which is not my server
            of course, my tech guy had to make that possible

            anyway,

            I am new to mysql, and I just wanted to say this much in hopes
            that the guy asking the question, or others may be able to use my weak tidbit of info in possibly coming to understand the possiblity


            thanks
