Thanks for the response. I was trying to connect to an sql database hosted
by godaddy, but it turns out that godaddy does not allow outside connections
to it's databases. So when you buy a plan at godaddy you get sql and a
website. Only the website that godaddy hosts can access the database.
I tried a different database and it worked. So if you're using Godaddy to
host your mysql db, I think you're out of luck.
