    using IP address as DB Hostname not allowed? in the wp-config file? i have a mySQL server running but 2 web servers will serve from the same DB. The web servers are on redudant setup backing up each other.

    it’s allowed if hosting allows it
    I’ve used the ip on several iPower installs

    i get database error. i edited the /etc/hosts on the 2nd web server to have the hostname and ip mapped. did a ping, success. change DB_HOST to hostname, same db error too. ideas?
