Access mysql remotely


I’m trying out SQLyog but can’t seem to connect to my mysql db. The error seems to suggest that dreamhost only allows access from specified ips…is this true? Can we not access our Dreamhost MySQL databases remotely?

To keep databases at DH (somewhat more) secure, remote access is blocked by default.

You can enable access from your remote machine. Here is a DH wiki article which outlines the steps you can do in the control panel.

Great, thanks!

Works like a charm.
