The MySQL hostname on most of our servers is localhost (with the exception on few reseller servers). You can always double check this information in your Members area -> List accounts -> Account details.
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.
