Sounds like you are trying to connect from your local site? Does your hosting provider allow SQL connections inbound from outside their network? some providers do, many dont. check with them.


how is that?..when i go to my web host and go to mysql there is only create database and go to phpmyadmin..after that in my phpmyadmin i cant modify its settings like inbound outbound you just said...do have suggestions for any web hosts that allows these features for free?..because i this is just for my project testing and no business purposes...thank you...
