Hi @Sayandeep,

I’ll suggest checking @JonsJava’s suggestion. If you have a firewall added from your Control Panel you’ll need to allow the connection from there as well.

Additionally, can you share your UFW status from your droplet, maybe the MySQL connections were not allowed for your IP Address?
