    33> Hello,
    4 >I am trying to connect to a remote database using IPv6. I have configured the MySQL database bind address to that of the IPv6 address and created a database and issued all the required permissions.
    5 >When I go to install WordPress, I enter the IPv6 address and WordPress returns the following message "Error establishing a database connection". I have made sure my MySQL is working by using MySQL Client and it connects to the database without any problems.
    6 >I then did a little more digging and found that if I change the database bind address to a IPv4 address and configure the correct permissions, WordPress will install using an IPv4 address.
    7 >WordPress will not work with IPv6 address.
    8 >Thanks.
