I would like to access a MySQL database in the public network my host is on.
I need to access the MySQL database from within Vagrant by connecting to the DB via PHP’s mysql_connect.
I have an ubuntu/trusty64 Vagrant box running Apache2, PHP and MySQL through the old mysql extension.
When I try to connect to the database on the network via the DB server’s IP address, it says Can’t connect to database.
What do I need to do to be able to access external servers from within the Vagrant guest?
I could connect properly after all. I just mixed up the variables for my password and the DB name in my code. ^_^;
