    Hello,

    Recently a remote connection to my cpanel server has started failing.

    Things to consider

    1. This connection has worked for weeks
    2. Cpanel has had one update I think since then


    Trouble Shooting done

    1. Checked Remote access for my IP added in cPanel account still in place - Good
    2. Checked to ensure access to 3306 was enabled in firewall for my IP - Good
    3. Added, Removed, re-added, re-removed, slapped, kicked and punched it. - Bad

    Current Status

    1. Removed my IP and added ip.bla.bla.charter.bah.bah - Can now make connection but not access tables
    2. I added % "wildcard" to the database via cPanel - Now can connect and access table

    Nothing changed, so why/what is causing this? I really don't want to leave the wildcard active.

    Stuff in limbo,

    Bill

    Hello :)

    Have you tried reproducing the issue with another remote connection (with a different IP address) to rule out any issues with the local server making the connection?

    Thank you.

    cPanelMichael,

    No I haven't. I'm at home and have a static IP. tomorrow I will try from with and from a VPN to see if that makes a difference.

    I need to rule out everything I guess. It's just so strange of a thing. Normally I can troubleshoot almost anything.
