comment Permissions on a typical shared Linux web host
Picture starting to get clearer here. So you are saying no matter how the server is configured (special users, apache etc.), the file and folder permissions can in no way affect the access permissions of a visitor's browser? If I want to control browser access I need to use .htaccess files or obscure folder names etc.

comment Permissions on a typical shared Linux web host
So, you are saying (in a rather round about way) that typically on a shared hosting setup, the USER permission affects what the PHP script running on the server can do, right? And so in that case, unless there is a very special scenario, the GROUP permission should not be more constraining than the USER setting, right? What about a visitor's browser permissions? Is that equal to OTHER?

comment Permissions on a typical shared Linux web host
Thank you for clarifying the name confusion. My FTP program (Filezilla no less) uses OWNER, GROUP and PUBLIC and I didn't know this wasn't the proper Linux names. I'll edit my question to avoid confusion. I think the other information in your answer isn't relevant or I am still missing soemthing big here.

Brilliant! That was it. Just for reference. I put bind-address=127.0.0.1 under [mysqld] in my my.ini file

Didn't realise that the internal loopback address goes through the firewall. Anyway, I've given HeidiSQL full access through the firewall and still can't connect.

comment How can I make localhost resolve to 127.0.0.1 instead of ::1?
I changed my main server name in the apache config file to 127.0.0.1 as you suggested and created a virtual host with servername of localhost and now I get both 127.0.0.1 and localhost to work. MySQL still not happy, but it may be an unrelated issue...

comment Using HSDPA broadband modem USB stick via 3G router
Thank you for your good advice for hunting down the problem. I tried most of the IP lookups and pingings as suggested before posting the question. There seemed to be no difference between the 3G side ip address and DNS addresses that gets assigned in both usage cases.
