Hello, I am trying to run migrations from my local device to digital oceans DB. I have sat up a PHPmyAdmin account and an mysql account.
In Laravel settings: DB_CONNECTION=mysql DB_HOST=[IP address of my phpmyadmin droplet] DB_PORT=3306 DB_DATABASE=[myDBName] DB_USERNAME=[username] DB_PASSWORD=[password]
I try to run a migration but its providing me with the following: Host ‘xx.xxx.xxx.xxx’ is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server
The user I am using has been fully granted all privileges.

You’ll need to create a new user in MySQL with the same
DB_USERNAME, DB_PASSWORD, and DB_DATABASEcombo but with the IP xx.xxx.xxx.xxx. Like this:
NB: “grant all” is lazy so make sure you only grant the privs you’d like to assign.
Thanks @unixynet ! It finally worked! It took me a whole day realize that user account is linked to an IP address (in default cases to local host which is 127.0.0.0.1).
I fixed the problem by following your directions exactly, and, by removing special characters in the password in the .env file of laravel.
