How to remotely connect to MySQL database located on our shared server
Remote MySQL connection is disabled on our shared servers due to security reasons, but you can easily setup SSH tunnel between your PC and our server using SSH-client (for example, Putty) with the MySQL port (3306) forwarding.
After completing it you will have port 3306 on your local machine listening and forwarding to your remote server's localhost on port 3306. Thus you can connect to the remote server's MySQL database effectively as though it were running on your local box.
Follow these steps:
Create a session in PuTTY using your server IP-address as hostname and port 21098
Select the Tunnels tab in the SSH section
Put 3306 as source port and 127.0.0.1:3306 as destination
Return to the Session tab and click Save
Run your session by clicking on "Open" button
Run your MySQL software on local machine and use 127.0.0.1 as server host, port 3306 and your database user login details
