Trying To Connect From A Different Machine On Which Mysql Is Running In A Local Area Network.

Recommended Posts


I want to connect my computer from a different computer on

which MySQL is running in an ethernet network (local area network).That

means that I don t want to use the localhost hostname.

What is the hostname in the command ?:

GRANT privileges ON database.* TO 'username'@'hostname' IDENTIFIED BY


Please give a specific example.

I have installed MySQL (on Windows) with the option :root access from

a remote machine enabled.


Thank you in advance.
