WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi

I've seen that you require tickets for allowing remote access to databases. I have a similar request but a little bit different. I need to be able to host my site with webfaction but then connect to a legacy database that is stored on another server. Here are my database settings:

DEVELOPMENT = {
    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.mysql',
        'NAME': 'shuttle_shuttle_django', 
        'USER': 'shuttle_shuttle_tester',
        'PASSWORD': '****',
        'HOST': '194.105.250.243',                    
        'PORT': '3306',
    }
}

This is the error I get: (2003, "Can't connect to MySQL server on '194.105.250.243' (110)")

Now I'm just wondering, are there any extra steps that need to be taken here? Do you need to allow my request?

You should have no problem connecting to the database as long as the settings are correct and you've granted remote access from the IP address of the web server, which can be found at http://my.webfaction.com/. If you continue having issues, don't hesitate to submit a support ticket.

Thank you very much for this answer. I'm having some issues, but I think it's on the Cpanel side of things :)
