Remote connection issues with MySql and Earthlink ! `
HI Ray, So I have updated my Software to DB 2 with you. Thank you. However I am running into a problem making connections to the remote database hosted on earthlink. For now, the local host works from the website itself but I cannot connect to make updates via Dreamweaver and WA remotely. This isn't just true in DW, but also in Navicat. The issue is that the sites are using php 5 being updated to 7 and the connection scripts are breaking when they do. But to run WA, I need to be able to connect remotely. Right now, DW's failure to establish a connection has put DW into a loop.
I am trying to work it out with EL and I wish I could get my client to move from them! Their tech support is terrible and very very slow (weeks) .
Wondering if you have any ideas? First attachment is WA in failed connection. 2nd 2 are connection errors in Navicat, the first using standard connections, the second using SSH. DW doesn't seem to give me a connection log or I don't know where to find it.
4th image is current db url they sent yesterday, which is for remote while the 5th is what works in the connection script for now from the website itself, but which breaks when updated to php 7 and mysqli
BTW, WA keeps trying to make the connection to the DB and I can't cancel out of it or get a log from it. I press cancel and it starts another attempt.
