The problem was that the IP address proposed by DigitalOcean was the wrong one

Hello @jymeissner

You can add your IP address to the trusted sources from your DigitalOcean account and give it another try.

Also MySQL 5.x clients, such as Sequel Pro, are not compatible with the higher password encryption requirements of MySQL 8.x. You can change the password encryption of your database’s users if you are receiving authentication errors.

Hey @jymeissner,

Have you added your IP address to the Trusted Sources list? Additionally, what way are you trying to connect to your Database, are you using a tool or you trying to connect from your cli?
