    We use remote mysql configuration and our cphulkd can't access the remote database. We get the following error:

    2016-07-06T14:21:39.671471Z 228041 [Note] Access denied for user 'cphulkd'@'xxx.com' (using password: YES)

    Where do we find/set the cphulkd password to configure it on the remote mysql?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    Login to your remote MySQL server and provide / create a user with the privileges for the user "cphulkd" to avoid this error.

    Creating new user:
    CREATE USER 'newuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

    Giving privileges:
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO 'newuser'@'localhost';

    FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

    Once this is done, try the remote connection and it should be fine. Provided the localhost should be replaced by the remote server details.
