MySQL: Configure Remote Access
In this article, we will show you how to add or remove IPs/Hosts to the Remote MySQL feature. This will allow you to connect to the MySQL server from outside of the server localhost.
Note: It is against our TOS to use our servers as database servers. Remote hosts should only be used for administration purposes only.
