    Hi guys,

    I know my question is so silly and old but i don't know to connect my pc remotely to the database i created in cpanel, although i added % in the host field of Remote MySQL.

    i get error message when i try to connect it via command line:

    shell> mysql -u cpanelusername -p -h domain
    Enter password: cpanelpassword
    ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'hostname/ipaddress' (10060)

    Any one can help me please?

    Hello :)

    Make sure you add the IP address you are connecting from to the "Remote MySQL" option in cPanel for this account. Try using your actual IP address instead of a wildcard. Also, make sure no firewall rules on your server or home computer are restricting the connection attempt.

    Thank you.
