    I'm sorry, but we do not allow people to access their databases from another server/computer. We used to allow this, but we had to disable it due to abuse and security reasons.

    Ah you're not serious? Damn. I understand the safety concerns though but what abuses were occurring?

    Anyway this doesn't help me. It's for my final year project and I needed a web host with MySQL database to run simple inserts, updates etc.

    Oh well, back to the drawing board so.

    Thanks for getting back to me!


    Just as a suggestion: you guys may want to update the options in CPanel in regard to this and remove the options and relevant sections in the documentation to avoid other people falling into the same situation in the future.

    We do offer MySQL databases, but we just don't allow remote connections to it.

    Yea, thanks but unfortunately I have to have some way of letting the application I'm writing have access to the database in conjunction to a website that has access also. The web part is fine and indeed required, but unfortunately the other half falls down without it.

    Murphy's Law ;)
