    you need to add your current ip address. You can find this at

    If you have a dialup isp, your ip address may be changing every time you dial up. If that is the case, if you got from that website, you should probably enter 12.34.% to Add Access Host.

    Now to connect to a db:

    Host is your website name - (not localhost)

    Also remember the database name will have your username and an underscore before whatever you typed, i.e. username_dbname
