Lost Connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet' system error 0
I have installed the OpenVPN server on the box and on the same box MySQL is hosted. Now if I try to connect to MySQL instance the following error appears.
“Lost Connection to MySQL server at ‘reading initial communication packet’ system error 0”
I have added the public IP of VPN in MySQL Access Host in WHM and cPanel nothing seems to work.
I did this because in Pakistan we have dynamic IPs so I would not let everyone try to hit the MySQL instance rather the access is given only to the VPN IP.
