Can’t connect to remote DB from my windows machine. Works perfectly fine from ChromeOS devices.
All local sites, but only on my Windows laptop
- Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
I create a database on my Dedicated Server with Liquid Web. I go to Remote Database, and add my IP address allowing this IP to connect to that database.
Then I setup a WordPress install using Local by FlyWheel.
Edit the wp-config.php file with the remote database information.
Try visiting the site, and you get the ol’ “Error establishing a database connection”.
Yes I’ve double, triple, quadruple checked the information, it’s not a typo. I know what I’m doing.
This works perfectly fine on my Chromebox and my Chromebook.
