Remote connection with MySQL Workbench work, with mysql not working

  • Answered
I have successfully connected to our MyQSL server on our dedicated server. When I try to connect using the mysql command line, the connection is not made. The error message simply says "Can't connect to MySQL server on 'x.x.x.x'" (on the ip of our server). I am using the same host (ip address), username, and password.

I have read many InMotion articles and tried variations of the mysql connection command. No success. I'm stumped and need help.
Hello Marc,

Thank you for your question on connecting MySQL to your server. How are you attempting to connect with command line? Is it from a remote connection? Your local device? Is it the same device as the one used to connect with MySQL Workbench? Is there anything you need with the command line that you cannot do with MySQL WorkBench?

Kindest Regards,
