Hello,

I'm trying to make just one of my MySQL databases for a website available to a developer for use but I'm stuck. I've made a user and added it to the database in question in Cpanel, but I still don't know how my developer will access the database.

Where does the developer need to use the user/password I have created for them to access the database?

I appreciate your help.

Thank you for your response.

Where must I go to enable MySQL networking? I assume I'll get the option there to open port 3306?

Thanks again

Actually, can you explain both in detail? I'm new to this so...

I appreciate it.

Hello :)

You only have cPanel access based on your "Website Owner" entry in your profile. However, you should be able to add the developer's IP address via "cPanel Home >> Databases >> Remote MySQL". This allows remote hosts (servers) to access MySQL® databases on your account provided they know the database user's username and password.

Thank you.
