Support » Fixing WordPress » Remote Database connection

  • Resolved hoiikmaak


    We have an assignment from school. Make 2 ubuntu servers, 1 with wordpress and 1 with a database server. Then setup WordPress and use the remote database server.

    I have made this setup locally in virtual box.
    Ip: My desktop, ubuntuserver1(wordpress), ubuntuserver2(database)

    I have everything installed and database has been created. Then when I go to, and try to configure the database it isn’t working.

    I tried to check if the database is available from to with the user I have made for the database, and I’m able to connect and see the database.

    mysql  Ver 15.1 Distrib 10.1.43-MariaDB, for debian-linux-gnu (x86_64) using rea
    Connection id:          3
    Current database:
    Current user:           wpuser@
    SSL:                    Not in use
    Current pager:          stdout
    Using outfile:          ''
    Using delimiter:        ;

    | information_schema |
    | wordpress          |
    2 rows in set (0.00 sec)

    I have tried many things however, at this moment I’m clueless what to try.
    I can start and run the installation, however when I press the button, it stops and:

    This page isn’t working is currently unable to handle this request.
    HTTP ERROR 500

    shows up.

    All things can help 😀 !, please if something comes to your mind tell me.
