Need help with My SQL

Recommended Posts

I created a database called: shivamam_FreeWizard101Codes

I also made a user called: shivamam_fw101c

I also interconnected them, and gave the user all permissions


The following script worked at my last host, so why doesn't it work here?


$mysql_host = "localhost";
$mysql_username = "shivamam_fw101c";
$mysql_password = "password";
$mysql_database = "shivamam_FreeWizard101Codes";

mysql_select_db($mysql_database, mysql_connect($mysql_host, $mysql_username, $mysql_password));



I get the following error:


Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 113


I don't understand what the problem is. All i changed was the My Sql info. This worked perfectly at my last host, so why not here?

It seems you have this fixed, which is good of couse :) -- For future issues though, I strongly suggest using our helpdesk ( for technical issues instead of our forums. Our helpdesk is staffed 24/7/365 whereas our forum is not, so an issue is going to be resolved much faster through our helpdesk.
