Archon will not connect to external mysql DB

Postby samokon » Thu Jul 26, 2012 1:55 pm

I recently installed Archon to evaluate it for use. I configured it according to the installation instructions, but when I try to connect to archon and am redirected to index.php?p=install all I receive is the error message :"Error connecting to database!"

I am attempting to use a mysql database on another server we have set up dedicated to file storage and databases.

Are there configurations particular to this type of arrangement? If so, I would deeply appreciate guidance or advice.

my config.inc.php
$_ARCHON->db->ServerType = 'MySQL';
$_ARCHON->db->ServerAddress = '(mysql server ip)';
$_ARCHON->db->Login = 'archonadmin'
$_ARCHON->db->Password = '(password)'
$_ARCHON->db->Database = 'archon'

Archon sits on a centos server 6.x. Also:
php-pear-1.9.4-4.el6.noarch
php-common-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64
php-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64
php-devel-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64
php-pgsql-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64
php-gd-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64
php-pear-MDB2-2.5.0-0.3.b3.el6.noarch
php-mysql-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64
php-ldap-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64
php-pdo-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64
php-cli-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64
php-xml-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64

Mysql 5.1.61 is on an Ubuntu server configure to listen to the internet facing ip.

Thanks!

Have you installed an configured MDB2? Archon won't work w/out it:
