MYSQL Database question

Hello,

 

I was wondering exactly how do I link to a database on a server different than the one all of the oscommerce files are on? What would I put in place of 'localhost'?

 

Thanks!

try: username@server_IP_address instead of the default username@localhost

 

Also, make sure your mySQL server allows the new user to connect to it.

 

Hope this helps,
