Remote access to MySQL not working after following a ton of tutorials. What am I missing?
I’ve changed bind-address to 0.0.0.0 and today changed it to the IP of my server which still doesn’t work. The MySQL user I’m trying to connect with has host set as % and I’ve of course restarted MySQL a bunch of times. To test if the connection works I’m using XAMPP for windows and running “mysql -h SERVERIP -u user -p” to see if I can connect which it cannot. (Error 10060)
