  • Config File Panic!

    Here is the situation....

    Previously, my site worked perfectly fine. My company just moved buildings and purchased brand new networking equipment including a slew of Cisco stuff. Nice, but tricky to work with.

    Here is the problem. In the config, you have to define the ip address of the mysql server. Fine before but now there is a problem. The box had to be re-addressed from having a public address to a private address. The firewall then takes care of the NAT from public to private address. Everything works fine from the outside. Here's the problem. Internally, I have to use the private IP address, if I use the public it hangs. This is due to Cisco not exiting the firewall and re-entering. In the config file, the public is hard-coded and therefore hangs internally. If i change it to the private address it works fine, but then from the outside no one can get in.

    Please, I desparately need help!!!
    My boss is riding me on this one.

      I tried that, and it said it could not connect to localhost?

        Try 127.0.0.1 instead.
