finding out what localhost is


Heres the problem. I have one of my client's site hosted on a crappy
server, and i have it running with php+mysql ok, the thing is i need to
connect to that site's mysql's database from a remote site to get some
data. The problem is that on the origin site (the crappy server), to
connect to the database, i use "localhost". How can i find out the real
server to connect to from the other site? I tried using the whole domain,
like www.crappyserver.com, but that doesnt work. :-P tried using the ip and
still nothing, how can i find out the real "server/port" of the mysql
database on the crappyserver?
