    I'm having trouble figuring out why our web server won't connect to Amazon RDS. I've connected via command line on a simple CentOS server and from several computers via MySQL Workbench. The RDS security groups are set up properly. The command I'm using should otherwise work. Is it possible my server is blocking outgoing connections to port 3306 and where would I change this?

    Never mind. I should have known it would be in CSF. For anyone else who is up late at night after working all day and have a tired brain, WHM->ConfigServer Firewall->Firewall Configuration->All Outgoing TCP Ports, add 3306. Good night.
