Anthony - thanks for the response. I was watching my email for responses but none came that way. Just checked the boards.

I have several sites hosted with GoDaddy including the one on which I'm trying to allow remote access to the MySQL database. I'll call the site which has the database "" and the remote site ""

I've tried via a simple PHP script running on ""; to access data on ""; It takes forever and doesn't return any data. The same script running on ""; easily and quickly returns data. Again - both sites are running at GoDaddy so they shouldn't be behind any firewalls or blocking software.

My development machine running Tomcat is behind a firewall but I figured the above test was a good one to see if the database allowed remote access.

I don't know if the database server configured to allow access via TCP/IP (no "skip-networking" in your startup) and I'll check this. I'm new to the administration side of all this so I'll have to do some research. That is probably a good lead.

Thanks again for the response. Sorry for taking so long to respond myself.
