I'm trying to set up WP while using a remote database connection as the server I have WP installed on has outdated MySql. I have all of the information correct in wp-config.php and it's still telling me is can't connect to the database to continue the install. Here is the snippet of code I currently have:
/** MySQL database username */
/** MySQL database password */
/** MySQL hostname */
I've been able to log into myphpadmin fine and see the database I've created with the login details above, but for some reason it's not taking. I've also tried adding the port to the end of the hostname with no luck. Please keep in mind Localhost isn't an option as I am connecting from a remote mysql host.
