    Hello HHTri,

     

    I understand you are looking for a solution to a problem connecting to your database via a plugin. May I ask what the plugin is that you are using?

     

    Be sure to review the:

     

    Host:

    User:

    Password:

     

    If the plugin is trying to connect externally you may need to whitelist remote access to the database.

    (only specific hosting accounts have the ability to whitelist ip address's for remote mysql access.)

    @Amadeuslopezart,

    Thanks for the quick response. I have installed Phpmyadmin plugin into wordpress. When I attempt to login it comes up with that error. What do you suggest?

    Hey there HHTri,

     

    So I am not familiar with that specific plugin but try adding your host name without the port number.

     

    mybe41788576202.db.41788576.426.hostedresource.net

     

    the port number typically can be specified in a separate field, let me know how that works out.
