Is it possible for an external source to access MySQL?

Postby Xius » 09. October 2007 03:56

None of my sites will connect to my mysql database im trying to get stats from, because they are not on localhost.

they are on FTP hosts.
is there any way to configure xampp to allow external connection?

you have to create a (remote) mysql user to login from an external server name or address (instead of localhost). Easily done by using phpmyadmin.

Try the MySQL manual.

When you setup the user account you can specify what hosts that user can connect from.

I think you should get a book that covers MySQL and PHP and read the part the explains the MySQL permission system and how to create user accounts.

It won't take much time and its something you really need to understand.
