In order to work, you need to allow the mysql username (and your host also must allow this) to connect from remote machine. In host, you need to provide the IP or the domain name e.g. domain1.com and rest of the parameters will remain same as you provided before.


There shouldn't be a problem there. Use the same connection details for both domains.

Wrong, because DB

for domain2 i like to use the domain1 database(xxx)(it is in diff hosting)

John, you need to ask your provider (from the one with DB) if databases is enabled for external access.
If not ask if it is posible, many providers do it, many refuse it as they do not knnow how :)
Once external access enabled your provider should also give you details how to connect to DB, can be IP or URL string
