I can't remotely access my mysql database.

Hello I can’t access my mysql database remotely, I set bind_address = and opened the port, create users such as arthur@‘%’ and it doesn’t work. Could you help me ? Here is the error on the remote computer:

arks@arkslaptoplinux:~/Dossier/Etudes/Iut/2/SAE/sae_3$ mysql --host --user arthur -p
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'arthur'@'' (using password: YES)

I use an digitalOcean Droplet

Hi there,

Can you share the output of the following query:

select user,host from mysql.user;

You should see the following output:

    | user   | host      |
    | arthur | %         |

Also, what is the MySQL version that you are using?
