I am testing an open source application.
When at the setup stage after installing mysql, php all the good stuffs, I have to specify where the mysql server is. Here is the problem, if I put in "localhost" as the mysql is installed on the same box, it would work perfectly fine. If I put the actual hostname then it would fail.
pinging the hostname actually has no problem. The box is using a working dns server.
Did anyone experience any similar name resolving issue while ping, nslookup everything is workig but an application isn't able to see its hostname?
