not using local host using ip address

not using local host using ip address

I attempted to install the power gallery without luck because it will not accept the network ip address for the mySQL server that powers my websites. is there something that I need to do or change so that when I install power gallery it will allow me to use an ip address for the database?

power gallery has no restriction on using an IP address for the MySQL Host.

the only restriction on entry is that none of the connection fields are left blank.

If the IP Address is not working, then it means the IP address is not the correct address to enter when connecting to the MySQL Server.

very few hosts actually use the IP Address for the MySQL Server name, it is not a common practice. you should contact the host to determine the correct address that should be used for connecting to the mySQL Server
