Thank you for your question wkchan!

The database hostname for scripts running on the server is localhost.

If you are using a remote connection you will use the server hostname. You will need to add the IP of the connecting server to your Remote MySQL.

Do you mean I need to setup a remote MySQL?
I tried that by adding my current IP as the host, but I still cannot connect to my wordpress data from JConverter? Can you give me more details please?

It's difficult to say how you are connecting so I gave both. If your connecting from another hosts server to your database on our server, you will need to add that servers IP address into your Remote MySQL and use your hostname found in your AMP panel technical details.

If you are connecting with a PHP script on your server with us then it will need to be localhost. Where are you running the MySQL connection from? Your server with us or from another hosts server?

Best regards,
