    I am trying to allow new access hosts to gain access to a db.
    Do i just put in the url of the sites
    or the ip address

    A bit confused on which one to use.

    Thanks
    Peter

    The access host will be the persons address that is needing access to the server database. This will allow them to log in with the proper credentials.

    Also, if you are running a firewall, you should add them to the firewall allow list as well if you are blocking port 3306.
