in reply to Connecting to remote db with DBI

It looks like you're making a mistake when building the DSN: constrast yours ("DBI:mysql:$db;host=$host") and the one provided in the documentation of DBD::mysql:

use DBI; $dsn = "DBI:mysql:database=$database;host=$hostname;port=$port";

You're missing the "database=" before $db.

    Thank you.

    I needed the 'database=' in the statement. I also had to use the hostname rather than the IP address, however this may be a network issue.

    My final connection code looks like the following:
    my $dsn = "DBI:mysql:database=$db;host=$host";
    my $dbh = DBI->connect( $dsn, $user, $pass, { RaiseError => 1 }) or die ( "Couldn't connect to database: " . DBI->errstr );

      Worked the first try !!
