Accessing remote Mysql database

Post by roywikan » 2006/08/16 10:16:09

Im newbie on remote mysql connection.

I have two servers:

Server A:
on my home pc
centos 4.xx
apache 2 on port 8888 (ISP block port 80)
mysql 5.xx on port 3306 opened
dont have domain name assigned, only public ip.
running smoothly
80GB harddisk

Server B:
located 3 hops from server A.
on a shared web hosting
mysql 4.xx
using cPanel
very limited space

Wha should I do to enable access my home pc's MYSQL database (on SERVER A), so i can access it using php script from SERVER B?
Is it needs to add host to cPanel's SERVER B? (or it doesn't has any relationship with this case...?)

Thank You

What type of address you have on Server A (static/dynamic)

You should be able to do it just need to know how to access it.
