i was looking this: Copy mysql database from remote server to local computer
And it's the same case as me! but what i need use to connect with the following code:
mysql -u username -p -h remote.site.com
Assuming that you have mysql utilities on your machine.
Go to your start menu on your PC and click on "run"
Then when the dos command line come up type in your command.
mysql -u username -p -h your domain.com
If you get an error something like "command not recognized" you will have to first navigate to the mysql bin folder
cd C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin
Then execute the mysql..... Command.
Note, the remote server has to accept the connection. If you get a connection rejects you may want to make sure your remote server allow such a connection.
