OpenEMM 2015 Windows Version and Remote MySql

Post by timr » Tue Sep 27, 2016 2:23 pm

I have used OpenEMM 2013 on a Windows 2008 server box with a remote MySQL database for the past 3 years with no problems. However, I can not get OpenEMM 2015 R2 (or R1 for that matter) to connect to the same remote MySQL. In OpenEMM 2011, the database connection was in Per Mashoff in a another user's post, the database connection was moved to context.xml. But using the same connection string that works in OpenEMM2011 - doesn't work in OpenEMM2015 -context.xml. When I run start.bat, I get "Failed to connect to database". So my question for OpenEMM users that run it on Windows, has anyone been able to install OpenEMM2015 with a remote database?
