Cant connect to GoDaddy DB

jolt_design posted 5 years ago in Creating a connection
I setup a DB on my GoDaddy Hosting.

I cna connect to it from the PHPmyAdmin page but not though hediSQL.

Any tips on getting this connection working?

Which error message?

* Check the user account which you intend to use with HeidiSQL. Ensure via PhpMyAdmin the host name has "%". I guess it has "localhost" or similar.
* If that didn't help check if the server has set "skip-networking" off by

SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'skip_networking%'

It must say "Off" to work with external connections like HeidiSQL does.

Most hosting services prevent outside access to their databases by default. Some prevent it in all cases. In GoDaddy it depends on whether you are a pay customer:
