I just moved a website using EE from Apache to IIS. The site is using MySQL for the db.
We have a two server setup. IIS is on one server and MySQL on another.
I can access the database on the local MySQL database server easily. I can also easily hit the database using an internally developed PHP test script and direcy MySQL commands but I cannot connect with your dbtest.php or with EE. I get “Unable to connect to your database.”
The site is live with another host right now so I don’t know if something is cached and trying to access the database on the other host which uses a different username and password for our connection string.
We have many sites using various CMS systems on this server, all of which connect to the same instance of MySQL EE is trying to connect to. I am stumped.
What PHP modules are required by EE to run with your configuration?
BTW, I read many posts and saw another connection string posted by a different web host which also connects flawlessly. Please advise…thanks
