I'm trying to populate a MySQL DB from my computer. I've located the .ini file called "my-medium.ini" which contains a line I was suppose to either remove or uncomment. It's the "skip-networking" line. The client I'm attempting to connect with from my pc requires the host name, db name, username and password. I added the host name, db name, and then added the username and password for my MySQL db. I'm still unable to connect. Is there anything else I need to do with the my-medium.ini file to allow access? I'd really appreciate your help!
You have to view your firewall which port is opened. If port for sql is closed your client will still cant cannect
