Connecting Sequel Pro to Digital Ocean Droplet

DigitalOcean Ubuntu MySQL

I’ve just created a new droplet with digital ocean to run my wordpress site. All has gone well until I try to connect Sequal Pro.

I am using the SSH tab in Sequal Pro and have entered the following details…

My Password is the one found in /root/.my.cnf

When attempting to connect I keep getting asked to put in my password for root@myipaddress.

Can anyone help me please? What am I doing wrong?

Your screenshot shows you attempting to make a connection to which would be your local computer where you are running Sequel Pro rather than your server. Make sure to use your droplet’s public Ipv4 or ipv6 address when setting up your connection.
