MySQL Host remote connection





orlando619
Hello everyone..

Is it possible that I can remotely access my SQL host from my PC ??

We'll put it just in a simple word,
I just want to run my own ROSE Online Private Server ,
but the problem is I must run the 3 .exe files for the server to be online .

The mysql_host, mysql_username, mysql_password. and mysql_database must be
filled with information given by the frihost.com

but the problem is I can't connect it from my computer.

There are many restrictions to doing remote access for SQL services. The biggest one can be firewall rules and access rights. Some SQL services only allow localhost access (meaning no remote) and others allow to use IP or a friendly hostname to connect but this is for routing purposes and in this case firewall rules can become the restriction.

So most likely if you can't connect to the server with the given information (most likely mysql_host is what you'll need to find) then it's due to firewall rules though other permissions may also be a cause.

It should be - I'm not certain what you want. Do you mean you are trying to connect to a database on the server using software on your computer?

Isn't that illegal?

You need a few things:

- The server must have a port open for MySQL.
- The server must be configured to listen for connections on said open port.
- The MySQL user must be username@%, not username@localhost (% means "anywhere").

As far as I am aware, Frihost is not configured to allow remote MySQL connections, so what you're asking is impossible if Frihost is your MySQL server.
