Remote Connection to MySQL Database
I am attempting to connect, remotely, to the MySQL server created on my Droplet. However, every time I attempt to connect, I get the error of “Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx’(10060)” and I can’t find a solution to my issue, no matter how much I look around.
Netstat -ntl | grep 3306:
tcp6 0 0 :::3306 :::* LISTEN
#skip-external-locking # # Instead of skip-networking the default is now to listen only on # localhost which is more compatible and is not less secure. #bind-address = 127.0.0.1
SELECT user, host FROM mysql.user;
| UserName | % |
SHOW GRANTS FOR 'UserName’@’%’;
| Grants for UserName@% | | GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'UserName'@'%' |
sudo ufw status
To Action From -- ------ ---- 3306 ALLOW Anywhere 3306/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 3306 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 3306/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
