ASP and remote MySql Database

Posted 16 July 2012 - 02:56 AM

Hello there,

I am trying to develop an e-shop for my father's store. So far i have managed to create a nice UI with lots of CSS. I used ASP 3.5 with VB.Net. The web hosting company is giving us space in a MySql server which username,password and ip was sent to me via e-mail. I successfully connected the e-shop with a MySql database that sits on my PC (server=localhost,uid=root). But when i try to connect to the remote database nothing happens.

Can you tell me the exact steps that i need to take in order to connect the website with the remote MySql database?

thank you

you need to change server to point at the server that they setup for you. This will probably be the IP they gave you.

So it would be server=<IP>, uid=<username>..... Beyond that with out knowing more I cannot advice you any further. My suggestion would be to talk to the technical support for who ever the database was setup through to have them help you as they will be able to look at the configurations.
