I have Magento running on Heroku but the DB is on Dreamhost (because Heroku doesn't host mySQL). I get a Database connection error from Magento whenever I try to connect. Anyone ever done this?

Did you configure the database to allow external connections? By default they're only accessible from within the Dreamhost system. – Su' Apr 2 '12 at 22:21
