[BUG] password with special characters (MySQL / ssh tunnel)

wer's profile image wer posted 4 years ago in Creating a connection Permalink

I have experienced problems with connecting to MySQL via ssh tunnel whenever there was some special character within the password.

So I guess there is some issue either with escaping the character or with quoting the whole password.

Could you fix it?

I recall I wrapped the ssh password in double quotes in some recent revision, so the question is on which HeidiSQL version are you? And if it's not the latest build, then please update.

In case the problem persists with the latest build, please report back about which characters we are talking about.
