Remote MySQL access allows remote hosts (servers) to manage your databases.

To set up remote access we will need to allow remote IP that will be connecting to your database. That can be done by accessing your hPanel and navigating to Remote MySQL in the Databases section:

In the newly opened window, you will see the IP (IPv4 or IPv6) field, where you can fill in the IP address from which the remote connection will be initiated. If you want to connect from any IP, click on the checkbox Any Host:

Make sure to select the Database which will be remotely accessed and click Create:

After the remote access is created, you will be able to remove it if needed on the Remote MySQL section:

NOTE:

  • Remote connections also require you to use our MySQL server hostname, which is specified on the top of the Remote MySQL menu window:
