I have a php page on server #1 trying to access a database on server #2. What do I put in the following blanks:

$hostname: ___________ (have tried IP, http, localhost, nothing works)
$username: blah
$password: blah
$database: _____________

$link=mysql_connect($hostname, $user, $pass) or die("Failure to communicate with database");

$close=mysql_select_db($database, $link);

All I get is the "Failure to communicate....." message.

Server #1:
Server #2:
$database is cassy, but do I need to add anything to that?

I've tried asking two people who are really good at this and they have no answers.

Maybe you have to specify the port of the database on the remote machine.
Maybe the MySQL daemon is not running?
