I created the server few days ago with PhpMyAdmin installed. Since then I’ve been able to set up SFTP and transfer files, and I’ve created databases and users on PhpMyAdmin. However, when I try to connect to those databases I get an error saying this:
Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 0
I’ve tried changing the hosts.allow file to the server IP, but even then I get the same error.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
