How to Connect to a Database Using MySQL Workbench


Download and Install MySQL Workbench on your local computer:

Open MySQL Workbench

Create a connection to the server:

Click on New Connection

Fill in the requested information

  • Connection name – The name that will be shown in MySQL Worbench (Does not affect connection)
  • Hostname – The IP address or hostname for the server
  • Port – 3306 is standard, modify if the server listens on an alternate port (Public Cloud uses 3336)
  • Username – Usually root, but any account with similar privileges will work

Note: Most MySQL instances are configured to not allow root connections from external servers.

If this it the case, RDP to the server and use MySQL Workbench directly on the server

The rest of the information can stay as is

Hit Test Connection

Insert the password for the account and try to connect

If your connection is successful, hit OK
