    In wp-config.php, you configure a parameter for the database host, so you’d use either the IP address or local network name for the machine with the database server. Make sure you have port 3306 open on the machine hosting the database.

    Hi @sterndata

    Here’s the result of what i do “Error establishing a database connection”, can you give me a sample config.php that configured already..??

    thanks…

    Outside of WP, can you connect to the MySQL server on the other machine?

    from the command line

    mysql -u DB_NAME -pDB_PASSWORD -h DB_HOST DB_NAME

    where DB_* is what you have in wp-config.php in the lines that define the DB connection? (Yes, there is no space after -p)

    What are you using for DB_HOST?

    Look at wp-config-sample.php for a model of what should be there and read this: https://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php
