Trying to connect to mysql from an outside computer
Hello, I'm still learning linux and had a few questions. I've got a linux server running debian, and its got the newest version of mysql on it. It works fine, it lets me connect through Putty from my other computer (I cant work with the actual box, its much easier to work with putty) but when I try to connect with MYSQL-front it gives me the error
"SQL execution error #1045. response from the database: Access denied for user 'root'(at)'user(at)local')using password: YES) please check the username and password. Afterwards, please ask the database administrator (internet provider) if you are allowed to connect from this computer."
So since I'm the database admin, I really can't ask myself :P anyone have any ideas to get this working?
More info: I'm connecting using my LAN IP address for the server box, and I know I'm using the right password for the root mysql account.
