I want to access my databases from Filemaker Pro Advanced 14 on my computer, using ODBC. I've tried adding a data source to, installed MySQL 32-bit ODBC driver but when I enter Filemaker with one of my database users no table, column or field appear. It doesn't give a connection or password error, it just looks like an empty database

Also tried with and as TCP/IP instead of the IP but no difference

Hello guamedo,

Sorry to hear you are having issues connecting to your server via ODBC. Before any remote connection can be made, be sure you have added an access host to your cPanel. This should allow you to connect to the server assuming all other settings are correct.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
