Point of interest for those who are interested,
localhost

is correct as well as

127.0.0.1

(the default loopback address for all servers). Your domain name or the servers host name can also be used, but is not recommended as it will cause issues if your account is ever moved to another server, or in the event of an unexpected DNS change.

I'm trying out an external auto backup solution (backupmachine.com). This requires an IP Address. I've tried that associated with my site (173.248.188.177), along with the database credentials, but it always fails authentication.

 

Any idea how I give it access?

 

Regards,
