We have PhpMyAdmin available on every server.
You need to know the name of the server your shop is hosted on. If you lost it, go to https://___your_domain___/server and it will show.
The URL of PhpMyAdmin is:
You can use the same login details Magento uses to access the database. If you lost them contact us.
The database user is the same as the SSH/SFTP user of the hosting account.
If you try a wrong password too often, your IP will be blocked from access. If you need to be unblocked contact us.
Create Extra Database
You can create extra databases, as long as you start the name with the username and then an underscore, for example myuser_extradb.
Direct connection to 3306
A direct connection from your desktop or from another server to the MySQL database is only possible when you use an SSH tunnel. The tunnel is required to protect your passwords and transferred data.
Step 1: Create the SSH tunnel
I this example we are using port 3307 on the local machine to connect to host 127.0.0.1 port 3306 on the MageHost server side.
ssh -p2222 -L3307:127.0.0.1:3306 ___USER___@___SERVER___.magehost.pro
You need to leave the SSH connection open.
Step 2: Connect to MySQL
In another window on the computer where you started the SSH tunnel:
mysql -h127.0.0.1 -P3307 -p -u___USER___
You can also use an application to connect to port 3307 on host localhost, on the same computer where you started the SSH connection.
