I can't seem to connect to a remote database. Here is what I've tried. the database,username,password, and host have been changed to protect the innocent. development: adapter: mysql database: database username: username password: password host: host port: 3306 Here is the error /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:133:in `load': syntax error on line 11, col 2: ` password: password' (ArgumentError) I've checked to make sure that the username,password,database, and host are correct. Can anyone help?

Can anyone help? First, check the leading space isn't a tab (caught me out more than once...), then check there aren't any yaml-special characters in the username or the password... Can't think of any other likely issues without more info.

Hi, you can try this: ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(:adapter => "mysql", :host => "188.8.131.52", :port => 1234, :database => "dbName", :username => "user", :password => "pwd") hope this will help Saiho --- charlie bowman <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > password: password > are correct.

Thank you! I use a tab stop of 2 to seperate the values from the keys and that broke the yaml. Is that norman? Can you never use tabs in yaml?

Any decent text editor should give you the option to convert tabs to spaces. Use it! Tab characters are interpreted differently than spaces, so it will cause Rails to barf on your YAML if you include tabs. -Will
