Problem passing remote username when importing
I’ve been trying to debug a problem importing from various forums. i finally figured out that because my old/source forum database is on a remote server, this seems to be causing an issue. See the error below:
Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user ‘username@ip-of-remote-server’@’fqdn-of-local-server’ (using password: YES) in /home/xxx/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1416
The issue is I enter ‘username@ip-of-remote-server’ into the username field but somewhere the ‘@’fqdn-of-local-server” is being appended to the user so it fails authentication.
Is this a bug or does the import script not support remote servers?
Thanks in advance.
