Accessing MySql remotely in a WordPress One-Click Droplet
I have tried using MySQL Workbench to try and connect to a droplet with a WordPress One-Click installation but cannot seem to communicate with that install. I’m using the public IP address for the droplet, port 3306, “root” as the user name and then went to the droplet console and found the .digitaloceanpassword file and copied the “rootmysql_pass” value to use as the password but when I test the connection, workbench just tells me “failed to connect to MySQL at ip:port with user root…unable to connect to localhost”. Is this not possible in a One-Click wordpress droplet installation ?
