Hi there @april7baby,

What I could suggest in this case is to use a tool like MySQL Workbench to connect to your MySQL database directly from your computer.

You can follow this step by step tutorial on how to do that here:

That way you can connect securely to your database over SSH.

Hope that this helps and let me know how it goes!
