  are you still getting the same error? if so, the settings are still not right.

if you are getting a different error, i need to know what the error says.

in many cases, the iP should not be used for the MySQL server name. if you are unsure of what to use for the server name in the connection, contact the host.  

i was told to use the IP from the host company. I also tried the domain name and the web address
