Remote Database Config for DB Connection Information


I'm attempting to configure this plugin to use a mysql database to gather the db connection info:

I've filled out the configuration, here is the out from the LocalSite.cfg:

$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{Enabled} = 1;
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{Module} = 'Foswiki::Plugins::DatabasePlugin';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{ConfigSource} = 'Remote';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{ConfigHost} = 'localhost';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{ConfigDriver} = 'mysql';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{ConfigDB} = 'wiki';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{ConfigSID} = 'wiki';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{ConfigTable} = 'db_connection';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{ConfigUsername} = 'wiki_user';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{ConfigPassword} = 'wikiwiki';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{EditURLPrefix} = 'https';
$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{DatabasePlugin}{EditURLPath} = 'phpMyAdmin-2.2.2-rc1';

Here is a query from mysql database:

mysql> use wiki

mysql> select * from db_connection;

| description | driver | db_name | db_sid | ro_username | ro_password | hostname| table_name |
| devdb | Oracle | devdb | devdb | query_user | query_user | devdb.tare.local | NULL |

My page returns:

I've switched it over to "Local" and configured the local DBI sucessfully without issues.

I just can't seem to be able to get the "Remote" to work. Any sugestions would be appreciated!!
