In reply to: Problem passing remote username when importing
Any additional thoughts regarding this issue?
Thanks. I started a new thread about the issue since it wasn’t really related to Vanilla.
Thanks. I did look through all the troubleshooting steps…
something is pretty bizzare here.. so I tested connecting to the mysql server from the webserver via cmdline,
mysql -h 208.97.xx.xx -u username -pPassword DBName
all works fine.
I try the exact same information in the importer and nothing happens, no errors are logged, nothing.. so then for fun, I try removing the username and I get the following:
Warning: mysql_connect(): No such file or directory in /home/username/mysite/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1416
Not really the error message I would expect, but none the less.. I put back in the username and get the exact same error. It’s like it’s not passing the variables through. Any other suggestions?
Actually I can’t import anything. I’ve tried a couple of other forum databases I had lying about as a test. It’s like the importer isn’t being invoked or a password is wrong or something. I’ve doublechecked everything, my DB host IP address, username, db name, pass are all correct and verified.
Is there some issue with my DB’s not being on localhost perhaps?
