Trouble connecting to database on different server (4 posts)

    Here's my setup...

    I have a MySQL server (Windows 2003) that's housing all of my blog databases. Also on that same server I have a couple of test blogs which work fine. The database name in their config files are 'localhost'.

    I have several 'production' (viewable by the public) blogs installed on a Windows 2000 box running IIS5(something). Those config files list the actual server name for the database. Those are the ones that aren't connecting. I'm getting the: "Error establishing a database connection"

    The weird part is that they worked fine just last week. And nothing to my knowledge has been changed. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    Are they your boxes under your total control ?
    If not, did a host change a setting ?

    They are boxes under my total control. I know that I didn't change anything. I did just get back from vacation though. So who knows what might have happened while I was away. No one else is supposed to touch them.
