MySQL on a Windows 2003 dedicated server
 
I bought a dedicated server and installed MySQL
1. 3306 port is open
2. Remote administration in allowed

Now I wanna create a user to access a database in my server
I created a user like this
Code:

mysql> CREATE USER 'temp'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'some_pass';
mysql> GRANT SELECT PRIVILEGES ON mydb.* TO 'temp'@'localhost';
mysql> CREATE USER 'temp'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'some_pass';
mysql> GRANT SELECT PRIVILEGES ON mydb.* TO 'temp'@'%';

now how I am going to access the database remotely ? I wanna extract some
information using php

to connect I need details of the server ?
PHP Code:

$hostname = ;
$user 'temp';
$pass ='some_pass';
$db'mydb';

#connection code.... 

I am lil confused here that how my code will access the databse
without a proper host name ! I tried to give my dedicated server IP
but no use it din work !?

can any 1 advice me on how to configure ?

Your host should be the IP address of your PC where MySQL server is installed.

If you are connecting only through local network your local ip or else your global static IP

What is your PC name and you can use the name of your PC as well to connect if you are just connecting in LAN

Then you need to have a static IP for the machine which your ISP can tell you.

thx shaab... I figured out there were two IP's one finishes like this xxx.xxx.xxx.xx2 next xxx.xxx.xxx.xx3

I tried with the xxx.xxx.xxx.xx2 din work

but later after seeing the ipconfig I used the second 1 xxx.xxx.xxx.xx3 it worked 4 me

any way thx for helping ! shab

BTW some hosting providers give host names like sb.hostingserver.com

how they map to the db server ? is it a DNS ?
