unidentified error mysql

Thread began 8/11/2014 5:23 pm by Webbie | Last modified 8/13/2014 6:19 pm by Webbie | 953 views | 17 replies


Ok let me bring you up to speed, I am assuming you remember me and my site?

I had to change services with my hosting provider to make more room for future sites and had to create a whole new account and user name. I transfered the site with no problem now im trying to transfer the database connection. The database has been transfered successfully to the new account already and is waiting for connection.

do i need to have two servers set up in order to work around the "unidentified error" in MySQL connection? Am i doing this right?

If so, should i be connecting to the localhost?
Set me straight here, if im connecting MySQL connection to the localhost how is it suppose to get to the remote server??

If its magic than i can live with that, but im confused should i be putting my information from the localhost xamp server into the MYSQL connection form?
Or just stick with using the remote servers user name and database info into the MySQL connection form?

Is there something i should be changing within the site i already have for damage control to pull this off because of the connection that i was using will no longer be in play from here on out?

I have been approaching this by trying to reformat the database connection i already had (firsteweb), is that my problem?

Finally my man, should i go with option c, which is to create a fresh MySQL connection to the same database and just erase the first connection and everything will work in perfect harmony or will that cause more problems?

(ONLY if the answer is to reformat the connection i already have (firsteweb) with the remote server information into MySQL, i will attach the error i am getting at this point and you can advise from there)

Please help, sorry for all the pilled up questions, really want to learn this and trying to get this down on the first few posts..
