To host the database on another server you could try:
$db_host= "www.yoursite.com" instead of "localhost"
I have a plan to add a Link directory to the site NewGenre Software and BPO Solutions. Simply like wwwsitename/directory. From the php link directory I have the downloaded copy of the script with me. When i tried to install it in my site it shows some writing CHMOD permission errors. I checked it and that feature is disabled it seems. Though I contacted the hosting providers a few days before, that's not my doubt.
I created a free hosting account with a site where I could install the directory and it is working perfectly. My question is if am creating a similar index.php page in my own site, will it be possible to utilize the database of the free hosting site. Will inter server database transfers work. I have no idea, please share some information regarding this.
I downloaded the phpld script extracted and uploaded it in to my hosting in the folder Directory
see http://www.newgenresoft.com/directory it is showing a blank page . What could be the reason.? At lease some error messages should be popped out. Isn't it? I erased the dir and uploaded once again and tried.. Same result.
I tried both and it was not working..I changed the host and tried again. Now its showing but the host changing for database feature is having some error still.

Going to try with another hosting
Why not ask at the PHPLD support forums, they're great with support and fast.
Did you create a database and assign it a user/pass?
