Can't connect to managed databse mysql usign SEQUEL PRO

I followed some docs without success. MySQL said: Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’

Does any one has a tutorial on how to connect to the database using SEQUEL PRO or other MySQL mac client?

Hi there @rcolnago2,

In order to connect, you need to launch Sequel Pro, then under the Standard tab add your database details. You should not use SSH as the Managed databases do not come with SSH access.

Under the Standard tab add the database details:

  • Host - > this should be the hostname of your Managed database cluster
  • Username - > the username for your database cluster, by default it should be doadmin
  • Password - > the password for your cluster
  • Database - > the name of your database, by default it is defaultdb
  • Port - > here make sure to specify the Managed database cluster port, by default it is 25060

Once you have your information in there, click on the Connect button.

Let me know how it goes. Regards, Bobby
