  • Linking To Data Base Outside Home Url

    i was wanting to reach out to data base on diff server

    other then the server the php files reside on

    and need to know exactly what the config for

    $servername="what would i put here";

    ------------------other scenerio-----------------------------------

    like i have a server that host 4 diff sites but 1 ip
    1 is ip based
    other 3 name based

    example site http://www.???.com

    i install a set of forums on http://www.???.com ok which is name based
    and i want to use the data base from 1 of the other name based
    sites that already have an establised set of forums on it

    see what im saying is cloake the forums on one site so it never leaves the sites ip name but have the data base from other site

    any suggestions on this would really be appreciated

    You can use nslookup in windows xp and linux/unix to lookup the name of a host where the mysql is running on

    www.yoursite.com

    then type
    nslookup www.yoursite.com

    don't include the http:// part ofcourse.



    Side note: You know that for each instance of a forum, you require a unique license right? ok

        Put the name of the MySQL server you are trying to access, and as xiphoid pointed out don't include the 'http://'
