I screwed up with username and/or password while trying to connect to our database with MySQL Workbench and now my host machine got blocked. I should run mysqladmin flush-hosts command, but I can't find any tool for that. So, how can I flush hosts to enable access again?

Hello BlueSaga,

Thank you for your question. There is no hard limit for failed database connection attempts. I recommend ensuring the connecting server's IP address is added to Remote MySQL in cPanel. This allows the connection through the firewall.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
