    Trouble connecting to mySql database

    ggaarde Level 1

      Hi Forum

       

      I have a site hosted with Godaddy, and have created a database, but I can not connect to the database with DW.

       

       

      1)  I made made sure that the invisible file _mmServerScripts folder and the Connections folder are present both on my local machine in the root directory and on the server.

       

      2) I can connect to the hosting account with FTP.

       

      3) I can connect to the database via Goddaddy and PHPadmin.

       

      3) I have pointed the test server to the same url as the hosting account but to a folder in the directory that is called test_server.

      (I have used this approach before, and it worked then)

       

      4) I have tried to log on with the URL that PHP admin tells me: http://nbst.db.6113589.hostedresource.com/ and also with http://173.201.136.50

       

      5) I am getting the standard error code 404 suggesting:

       

      "a) There is no testing server running on the server machine

      b) The testing server specifed for this site does not map to http://173.201.144.128/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php Url. Verify that the URL Prefix maps to the root of the site. "

       

      6) The error message refers to 173.201.144.128. This is an unknown IP to me. The database is supposed to be at  173.201.136.50

       

      What am I doing wrong??
