Remote MySQL access

You can use software on your home computer to connect to and modify your online databases.

In order for the remote access to work, you'll first need to find out your IP address. From your cPanel, click on 'Remote MySQL' and then enter your IP address into the 'Add Access Host' section.

Please note your IP address most likely changes when you re-connect through your ISP so the best way is to use a '%' sign wildcard for the last section of your IP address, such as 123.456.123.%

Once that is done, remote connection is available from your computer.
