Why can I access my database via ssh and phpmyadmin but not mysql workbench?


I have set up a server to host my mysql database in and can successfully connect to it using ssh and phpmyadmin.

However I am having trouble trying to connect it in mysql workbench and I really don’t understand where I am going wrong… Could somebody help?

I am able to create databases using the terminal etc but as soon as I want to connect to it using netbeans or mysql workbench it is failing.!

Would be very grateful for any help as I am new to this…

Thank you!

Because MySQL binds to localhost by default.

I have sorted this… there was an issue with the firewall and permissions set for users in the database!

Thank you for your help!
