I try to setup Owncloud with an external DB:
I setup a Mysql - DB in an external seperate Debian machine, i just did an LAMP Installation on this external machine.(10.10.0.87)
Now i deleted my owncloud config and Owncloud prompts me to Setup an new Admin and to select a DB, (if you delete the config it thinks you Installed OC from scratch).
After that i fill in all the needed stuff:
The error shows this:
Error while trying to create admin user:
Failed to connect to the database: an exception occured in driver SQLSTATE[HY000]
 Cant connect to MySQL Server '10.10.0.87'
Am i missing something? do i need to specify the path to the sql server in a different way?
