Tried every tutorial that I’ve found about remotely connecting to the MySQL database. I’ve commented out the bind-address from my.cnf and used GRANT PRIVILEGES ON root@% for all databases.
But I still get the error: SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘IP ADDRESS’ (61)
when connecting from a different server. While connecting locally with phpMyAdmin works.
Any idea what I can do to get this working?
