  1. Okay I finally got an answer back from godaddy.com! This is what they said: We apologize for the confusion about the port settings. We only allow outgoing connections on http (port 80) and https (port 443). If you are using https, the application must use a proxy server. The IP address of the proxy server is and you will want to connect to it using port 3128. Then they gave me a link to a sample script.... where the heck do I put this?? In the connection file??? <? $URL="https://www.paypal.com"; if (isset($_GET["site"])) { $URL = $_GET["site"]; } $ch = curl_init(); echo "URL = $URL <br>\n"; curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1); //curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPPROXYTUNNEL, TRUE); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_PROXYTYPE, CURLPROXY_HTTP); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY,""); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $URL); curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 120); $result = curl_exec ($ch); echo "<hr><br>\n"; echo 'Errors: ' . curl_errno($ch) . ' ' . curl_error($ch) . '<br><br>'; echo "<hr><br>\n"; curl_close ($ch); print "result - $result"; echo "<hr><br>\n"; ?> ??????
  2. Yes. I tried the ip, the domain, the ip with the port, the domin with the port, even the ports godaddy suggested. I've tried all sorts of combinations.
  3. Yes you are right. I forgot to change the variables. This still does not work. I have been trying everything. I just sent in another help ticket to godaddy to clearify their reponse about the port 80 and 443. I just need to come up with another solution till I can get this one solved. Ahhh! If anyone has another suggestion please let me know. <?php # FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm" # Type="MYSQL" # HTTP="true" $hostname_conRES_Props = "homepagehomes.net:3306"; $database_conRES_Props = "nhlzklc_idxdata"; $username_conRES_Props = "nhlzklc_IDX"; $password_conRES_Props = "pasword here"; $conRES_Props = mysql_pconnect($hostname_conRES_Props, $username_conRES_Props, $password_conRES_Props) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR); ?>
  4. HI! I am trying to connect to my homepagehomes.net mySQL database from a site hosted with godaddy(not my choice) and I am having the hardest time. I have no problem what so ever connecting to the database from other sites that I have hosted with you. I contacted godaddy to see if they allow connections to other remote databases and they do. This is their response: You are able to do a remote connection from our hosting to a database on another hosting with another company. Please keep in mind a few things though. 1) It will have to go through port 80 or port 443, and must be a http or https connection. 2) You will want to check with the other host to make sure that it allows external connections, and which ports it should connect to I have checked out the forums and know that this is possible. I have allowed access in the mySQL admin of homepagehomes.net with %. I am using Dreamweaver MX do the connections and it ask for: Connection Name: I make up the name MySQL Sever: homepagehomes.net Username: nhlzklc_IDX Password: the one I created THen I click on a button to pick the database and it won't go to that database. I get an error. I have tried everything from homepagehomes.net:3306 ... changing 3306 to 80 and 443. Here is the script that Dreamweaver will produce: <?php # FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm" # Type="MYSQL" # HTTP="true" $hostname_conIDX = "homepagehomes.net"; $database_conIDX = "nhlzklc_idxdata"; $username_conIDX = "nhlzklc_IDX"; $password_conIDX = "password I created"; $conAdmin = mysql_pconnect($hostname_conAdmin, $username_conAdmin, $password_conAdmin) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR); ?> What in the world am I doing wrong???
