I'm running PHP/mySQL via a web hosting service. I require my PHP scripts to access an external PostgreSQL database. I have the PostgreSQL server setup to accept connections from anyone: I've tested this connection via pgAdminIII and I'm able to connect using this IP, but when I try to connect via php from the hosted webpage... But I'm foiled by:Warning: pg_connect(): Unable to connect to PostgreSQL server: could not connect to server: Operation timed out Is the server running on host "24.85.82.xxx" andaccepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432? in /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/weaktight.com/httpdocs/mytest.php on line 13 Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm not very experienced with any of this stuff.
Your webhosting company must be blocking outgoing requests on port 5432. I was able to connect to your server with your code - no problem.
