Unable to connect to mySQL database

I have added my host to the Remote Database Access Hosts list, but I am getting the following error when my app tries to connect to my database:

SQLSTATE[HY000] [1129] Host '' is blocked because of many connection errors; unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts'.

I have a shred server account so I don't have access to mysqladmin. How do I flush-hosts?

Thank you for your question westis5!

Sorry for the problem connecting to your database. I was able to connect remotely with a 3rd party application. Also, is not blocked in the firewall on the server. Make sure you have done the following.

1. <a href="">Create a user for the database and add the user with full Permissions</a>.
2. Try adding a % for testing in the <a href="">Remote MySQL</a> to open all connections

If you are still having trouble connecting after those steps, please <a href="">contact tech support</a> so they can review your logs when you connect. Sorry for the trouble.

Best Regards,
James R
