I have arrow chat working perfectly on and connects to the local database (using "localhost"). However, we recently moved our application database to an Amazon RDS Database. Our PHP application connects to it just fine. But when I attempt to change ArrowChat to connect to that same database (direct copy of the local database) it fails to connect. I've quadruple checked the connections. There's no firewall. Is there a bug in the system when NOT using "localhost" as the database server??

It's driving me crazy. I need this to work!

Maybe the problem is also the path, not only the "localhost".
For example, if I try to install arrowchat (using xenforo integration) in a folder different then same path where XF is installed, the database connection fails.
