I want to access my MySql database remotely, but can't seem to make it happen. Accessing the database local works perfectly fine.
System - Window Server 2008 Web Edition - IIS 7 - Mysql 5.1.56
I have tried the following things: - Grant mysql user full access (all privileges) and connection access from any host ("%") - Turn off Windows Firewall on server and open port 3306 on external Firewall - Added the following code to my my.ini:
# The MySQL server [mysqld] basedir = "C:\rootfolder\MySQL\" datadir = "C:\rootfolder\MySQL\data\" port = 3306 #socket = "MySQL" socket = "TCP/IP" skip-locking key_buffer = 16M max_allowed_packet = 1M table_cache = 64 sort_buffer_size = 512K net_buffer_length = 8K read_buffer_size = 256K read_rnd_buffer_size = 512K myisam_sort_buffer_size = 8M # Don't listen on a TCP/IP port at all. This can be a security enhancement, # if all processes that need to connect to mysqld run on the same host. # All interaction with mysqld must be made via Unix sockets or named pipes. # Note that using this option without enabling named pipes on Windows # (via the "enable-named-pipe" option) will render mysqld useless! # #skip-networking #enable-named-pipe bind-address=0.0.0.0
When connection I use: - Public IP from server - Username from user with all privileges - corresponding password - Port 3306
Sequal Pro (which i'm using tot connect) says the following:
Unable to connect to host IP, or the request timed out.
Be sure that the address is correct and that you have the necessary privileges, or try increasing the connection timeout (currently 10 seconds).
MySQL said: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'IP' (4)
Can anybody help me out?
