Hi,
accessing a remote database is as follows...
mysql_connect('host.com','username', 'passsword') or use ip address in the place of host.com...

previosly it was working but with another additional task

in phpmyadmin of the control panel there is an option access hosts at the bottom of the page where you can allow requests from ip address and only then remote access works...

it was working for me but recently it didnt...

so what is supposed to be done to make it work?
