I created a php file to connect to my database hosted on ipages.com with the following simple code:
<?php mysql_connect('hostname', 'username', 'password'); ?>
When I load this page, I get in return
0. No error message. I previously could not connect to the website using FTP with Filezilla, I had to contact the host to give me access. Is there a similar problem here? I have to access the host to get access to my database?
