Greetings and Salutations Ian,

Somewhere in your code you are going to have a line similar to this:
$currentConnection = mysql_connect ($server, $userName,$password)

$server is going to be either the name or the IP address of your server
$userName is going to be the MySQL user name you use to connect to MySQL
$password is going to be the password for your username.

an example would be:
$currentConnection = mysql_connect ('192.168.0.1', 'foo','bar');

This would create a connection to a MySQL server on 192.168.0.1 for user foo
with password bar and store it in $currentConnection for you to use.

This assumes that:
1: There IS a MySQL server on 192.168.0.1
2: That it is running on the standard port. (3306?)
3: That [EMAIL PROTECTED] has an account on that server
4: That foo's password is bar.

HTH,
Cal
