Mysql backups


#1

I’m attempting to set up mysql backup software on my Windows desktop.
All the Windows apps I’ve tried are using port 3306 to access my mysql db’s on my DH account - but all of them fail to connect.
I’ve double checked the server name and login details.

So… is the port right for DH mysql servers? Or am I missing something else?

I just want to be able to back up my mysql db’s to my desktop regularly…

Thanks

Did you modify the database user to allow connections from non-DreamHost hosts?

Thanks. I had just found that info when I saw your reply.
I have modifed the user info and included my ip address.

But I’m still getting the error - is there a special syntax for the ip address in the user info?
I just entered xxx.xx.xxx.xx.xx

Thanks
