Hi all, I need some help trying to connect to a mysql db on my VPS. I'm running a Counter-Strike server here at my house, and I want to stream statistics from that server to my db on my vps. The perl script that streams the stats, has a config file: dbtype = mysql dbhost = mydomain dbport = dbname = mydb dbuser = mydbuser dbpass = mydbpw dbtblprefix = ps_ I've tried the dbhost field as my domain name, and ip address, and for dbport I've put in 3306. I get the error: Error connecting to database using dsn "DBI:mysql:database=mydb;host=mydomain.com;port=3306": Host 'c-75-72-118-230.hsd1.mn.comcast.net' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server It's as if if my home IP address isn't allowed to connect remotely. And I did check to see that the DBI:mysql perl module is installed. Do mysql databases on the Linux VPS plan allow for remote connections? Searching through the forums I thought it looked like it, and that's where I saw to use port 3306. Running the same perl script on my VPS itself, I get a different error: Access denied for user 'mydbuser'@'localhost' (using password: NO) - I'm not sure where to fix that one yet, it should be using my password. Any suggestions? Thanks.
