I have problems accessing my MySQL database remotely

If you have problems accessing your database at your web hosting account remotely, make sure that:

  • You are using the correct MySQL hostname – it should be yourdomain.com or your site’s IP. If the software you are using requires also using a port use 3306, which is the default MySQL remote access port;
  • You are using the correct MySQL database/username/password. You can check this tutorial for more information on how to create them;
  • You have allowed the remote host to access your database. This can be done from your Site Tools > Site > MySQL > Remote.
  • You are connecting to the TCP port 3306.

If you are having problems accessing your MySQL databases remotely, ask your host for assistance. SiteGround provides the best Web hosting and we will assist you with any MySQL issues you may have.
