Went in to debug some things on the VPN site and noticed that the home page was taking forever to load (and in fact I think I ended up getting some cached version of the page).
Web server serving static pages no problem
phpmyadmin communicating with db no problem
Therefore problem has to be something to do with the wordpress code trying to establish a connection with the db.
Created a test.php file which does nothing other than try to connect to the DB. If it tries to connect to any DB running on the hcmc's mysql server, it times out and generates an error. If it tries to connect to a DB running on uvic's mysql server, it's fine. So, there's definitely a problem with any page on web.uvic.ca trying to connect to a db on the hcmc server. Put in request to sysadmins to check the Access Control List on the hcmc db server.
