mysqloo connection

Trying to connect to a remote DB (i.e not hosted by GSP) and it constantly forces the IP to (owned by GSP)

I asked them regarding it and they said it shouldn’t force that, so any ideas what’s going on?

Tried various different scripts that connect to a db and all of them force the same IP, tried using 180.x.x.x IP and a hostname (

Everytime the script tries to connect to db I get the Failed to connect to the database: Access denied for user ‘someuser’@‘’ (using password: YES).

Am I doing something wrong which is forcing the IP or what? :s

Your database provider may not allow off-site access. Some databases limit access to local ips only. So; this may be doing one further, and denying the off-site access and redirecting you to the local server.

Remote DB is allowed by the provider, and I’ve allowed remote access to the DB from the GSPs IP

Putting the redirected IP rather than the game servers IP would be helpful, duh.

Sorted :stuck_out_tongue: thanks.
