Connecting to remote MySQL database


New Member
I'm having issues connecting to a remote mysql instance. I've allowed remote connections on the MySQL server I'm connecting to and verified that it is working through a local sql client. My VPS (Centos/CPanel) instance however cannot connect to the server via SSH or my php scripts.

I did a google and found some people mention that on some servers I would have to enable http remote connections on my (KnownHost) server, is this the issue? If so, how would I go about enabling it?

I'm having what sounds like exactly the same issue - a remote MySQL server that accepts remote connections just fine from elsewhere, but I cannot connect when trying from Knownhost, or even telnet on port 3306.

Any pointers on a resolution?
