I'm currently writing a java program that will access my database hosted by godaddy.com. I have the correct MySQL driver for it to work in java but I can't get the connection to work. This is what I was told to use: "jdbc:mysql://mysql server:port/databasename" and this is what im using: "jdbc:mysql://mysql277.secureserver.net:277/mydatabase" I keep getting a connection timeout every time I run the program. I also send in user name and password. (DriverManager.getConnection(url,username,password). Anyone have any ideas?
