Use a MySQL-provided database management tool
Authored by: zacamjo on Oct 28, '06 07:53:32AM

Hello all, I'm facing a similar problem though the circumstances are different.

I'm using an iMac (10.4.8) to connect to a remote server where the MySQL instance runs (a shared system with multiple domains on it). I can connect fine and do everything I need to do via phpMyAdmin but was hoping to instead use the MySQL Admin tool(s).

Attempting to connect using the server IP and one of the db users repeatedly fails, though the error seems ill-defined because it extends beyond the bottom of the connection window with no means of scrolling to read the whole thing (the error message cannot be highlighted, the window cannot be extended, and I can find no log of the event). What can be seen reads as follows:

<-- snip -->
Connection Error
Could not connect to MySQL instance at ###.###.###.###
Error: Host
'' is not
<-- snip -->

That's all that can be seen. It sounds like my network provider (SBC/AT&T) has an issue with some aspect of the connection but I'm at a loss as how to proceed. Help?!
