In Topic: What is address or name of MDD's MySQL server?

There is an option in cPanel to allow external hosts to connect to your MySQL server. Click the link for "Remote MySQL" and add the hostname or IP address of the computer that's going to be performing your backups.


That did the trick :)

Thanks very much for the quick reply.

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?
