    Hi guys i want to ask you about connect mysql database from different hosting servers using php. and here my php code
    $db_host   = 'myurl.com:3306'; << Usually is Localhost.
    $username = 'mycpanel usernam';
    $password = 'smycpanel pass';
    $db_usr      = 'my database users';
    $db_pwd      = 'db pass';
    $db_db      = 'database name';
    $con = mysqli_connect($db_host,$db_usr,$db_pwd,$db_db);
    if (mysqli_connect_errno())
      die("Unable to connect to Mysql Server");
    function getblogList($con,$limit=5){
      $resblogData = "";
      $query = mysqli_query($con, "SELECT * FROM blog_content ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT $limit");
      while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($query)) {
      //populate and display results data in each row
      $post_title = $row['post_title'];
      $posted_by = $row['posted_by'];
      $post_date = $row['date'];
      $post_month = date_format($post_date_raw,"M");
      $post_day = date_format($post_date_raw,"j");
      $post_year = date_format($post_date_raw,"Y");
      $post_url = $row['post_url'];
      $resblogData .= "<li><span><a href='myurl path here'>$post_title</a></span>
       <div class='blogListData'>$post_month $post_day, $post_year | Posted By $posted_by</div>
      return $resblogData;
    <?php echo getblogList($con,5); ?>
    Code (markup):

    Warning: mysqli_connect(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'myusername'@'ajax.vivawebhost.com' (using password: YES) in /home/sligscom/public_html/index.php on line 10

    I'd double check your login credentials and double check the user is allowed to connect from the server the code is being hosted from.

    You have entered a domain name in the database server name field. This may be directed to your host, but MySQL makes a difference between the domain name and localhost. If your database is located on the same server, use localhost. Else you will need to add extra credentials for your login name (user name) to link it with the domain name, too.
    Edited: Sorry, I overlooked that you said you are on a different host. In that case your grant need to list the host you are connecting from, for example:
    grant all privileges on dbname.* to user@"%" identified by 'password';
    Instead of the % wildcard you can limit access to the IP that the connection is coming from. However, this setting is probably missing from your user table in MySQL and that is why you cannot login with your credentials.
    And have you checked that the MySQL service on the database server is not bound to This is also a frequently made mistake. Remove the bind-statement from /etc/my.cnf, because if the service is bound to it won't listen on packets that are coming from other addresses.
