Menalto2piwigo - can't connect to Menalto database

Greetings,

I'm trying to convert a Gallery3 install but I've hit a blocker. I've followed the help steps shown on the plugin page:
1) Copy the content of  var/albums (Gallery3) into piwigo/galleries
2) Ran synchronize
3) Submit the form.....and this is where it fails.

Piwigo is on HostA. Gallery3 is on HostB. I have granted permission on Gallery3's database access from HostA, and confirmed from the commandline. When I submit the form I get the error below (I added some info to the error message to confirm my input).

This is my input:
database host: HostB:3306  (also just tried 'HostB' with identical results)
database name: gallery3
database user: galleryuser
database password: ***
table prefix: g3
column prefix: <blank>

I have sniffed the wire and never actually see any traffic between HostA and HostB. iptables/firewalld and sestatus are all disabled.

<SNIP>

Am I missing something obvious?

Piwigo version: 2.7.4 (via netinstall, on CentOS7)
PHP version: 5.4.16
MySQL version: mariadb-server-5.5.44-1.el7_1.x86_64
Piwigo URL: http:// - not available on Internet yet

Re: Menalto2piwigo - can't connect to Menalto database

Can you connect via the command line to the remote host?  There is no magic there, so I don't think you're missing anything except the obvious, can't connect to remote...

Yes, no problems connecting via commandline with the same credentials.

Re: Menalto2piwigo - can't connect to Menalto database

Looking at your input, (and going from memory only) I don't think you'd need to specify the :port on the end of your hostname, as that's the default port and is assumed.  Again, just guessing and suggesting based off my memory of my conversion.


EDIT: Sorry, just read your original as you tried without the port info.

Correct I tried with and without :3306. I only tried it as the plugin parses for it. Both ways I see zero traffic via tcpdump.

I'm getting the exact same errors trying to import from G3. 

Have you had any success since your last post?

Thanks in advance,
John
