Remote Connection

The first step for achieving this, is to obtain the IP Address from which the Remote connection is being established. You can retrieve this information, if you visit one of the following sites:

https://www.whatismyip.com or https://www.iplocation.net/find-ip-address

Now access your cPanel account and click on Remote MySQL

On the next page, you will be able to add the IP Address in the Host field and if necessary, to attach a Comment.
Once ready, click Add Host.

On the bottom of the page, you can find the existing IP Addresses, that are added to the Remote MySQL list, from which such connection can be established successfully.

The settings, that you would need to use for establishing such connection are as follows:

Hostname:Your server name or IP address of the server
Database:Your database name
Username:Your database username
Password:Your database username's password
Port:3306
Note: If asked for Connection Method, select TCP/IP
