Connect remotely to a MySQL database in my Linux Hosting account

Updated Apr 8th at 15:18 BST

Follow these steps to enable remote access to a database in your cPanel account. You need to know the IP address from which you'll be accessing the database. Remote access lets you manage the database with tools like MySQL Query Browser or MySQL Workbench.

From your client area go to:

Services -> My Services -> click on the green "Active" button -> Login to cPanel/Control Panel

In the account Dashboard, click cPanel Admin.

In the cPanel Home page, in the Databases section, click Remote MySQL.

Under Add Access Host, in the Host field, enter the IP address from which you want to access your databases. To see your current IP address please visit http://ip.me.uk

Click Add Host.

More Info: Applications that connect remotely to databases use similar settings. You can view additional details for your database in cPanel.

Field / What to enter...

Host Name or Server / Your database's host name

Port / 3306

Username / The database user's username

Password / The database user's password

Database / The name of the database
