What is your MySQL hostname?

October 25, 2013     0 comments

The MySQL hostname is localhost.

If you are trying to connect to MySQL from a remote location (for example from your computer), please use these instructions:

  • Use the IP address of your hosting account as your MySQL hostname. Your IP address can by found on the left hand column when you login to cPanel.

  • Please add your computer IP address to the cPanel -> Remote MySQL section. You can check the computer IP address at http://www.tracemyip.org/

  • Use either the MYSQL username / password that was created in cPanel -> MYSQL section, or your cPanel login details to connect to the database.
