Connecting to remote database

I have been with trying to connect to a remote database all day. I have given remote access to a user and I can connect from my terminal but my application can't connect to the remote database. Please I need any form of help. I am new to codeigniter and I really need to work on this project

Zakk, I connect to AWS RDS. I do this by setting the connection params in the database.php in the config dir.

$db['default'] = array(
'dsn' => '',
'hostname' => 'database-2.ast-1.rds.amazonaws.com',
'username' => 'adn',
'password' => '1b3o',
'database' => 'subator',
'dbdriver' => 'mysqli',
'dbprefix' => '',
'pconnect' => FALSE,
'db_debug' => (ENVIRONMENT !== 'production'),
'cache_on' => FALSE,
'cachedir' => '',
'char_set' => 'utf8',
'dbcollat' => 'utf8_general_ci',
'swap_pre' => '',
'encrypt' => FALSE,
'compress' => FALSE,
'stricton' => FALSE,
'failover' => array(),
'save_queries' => TRUE
