Cant use a 3rd party mysql backend over ssh


#1

Ok… can somebody tell me if this is actually working or not…
I cant connect over a tunnel :frowning:
Here are the instructions i followed
http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Mysql#Using_SSH

This is the command i am running

#ssh -fNg -L 3307:127.0.0.1:3306 myusername@mydomain.com.com

And this is the error i get

bind: Address already in use
channel_setup_fwd_listener: cannot listen to port: 3307
Could not request local forwarding.

I haven’t tried tunneling, but looking at your ssh command, the last part should be your_shell_account_user_name@dbhost.dreamhost.com (dbhost is listed in your MySQL stats

The idea of running SSH to listen on a specified port makes me think that only one user on the server at a time can do this.
