Remote Access To Mysql


Recommended Posts

I have been successfully using remote access (from desktop pc) to my database. From time to time, if there is a disruption in isp/or power, it becomes necessary to re-boot my cable modem, whereupon my isp re-assigns a new ip address. When this would happen, I would routinely update my access host information accordingly, in 'MySQL Account Maintenance' in cpanel, and carry on normally. This time I get a 'MySQL Error Number 1044'.


I am successfully connecting to the internet.


My website is successfully accessing the database via remote host.


What could the problem be?

Error 1044 usually means you're not authenticating correctly, or you don't have permission to do something. I suggest re-creating your MySQL account in cPanel.


Also, make sure you've given the account access to whatever database it is you needed.


It ended up being a matter of deleting the user and re-creating it exactly as it was.


Thanks Mike.
