    Default What is the remote MySQL host for a basic multi-domain account?

    I was looking for this information in the CPanel interface but had no luck. Anyone know where to find it?

    Thx.

    Hi,

    If you are trying to connect to your MySQL server here at GlowHost from a remote database management program then the remote host is your web site's IP address, found in your welcome email. (Or just ping your domain name to get the IP)

    However, if you are on a shared account you may not be able to connect remotely because of firewall rules which are normally set to block port 3306 from remote connections for security reasons.

    Typically these types of accounts use PHPmyadmin to manage the database which is installed already and available in your cPanel. Our VDS and dedicated servers you can open those ports for remote management if needed. On shared I can't promise if they will be allowed since its not part of our normal shared configuration.
