Whitelist IP Address

Our firewall automatically blocks remote MySQL connections from remote locations (anything other than localhost), unless the IP address is whitelisted.

To add your IP address to the MySQL whitelist:

  1. Log in to your HostMonster cPanel account.
  2. Click the Remote MySQL icon under the Databases category.
  3. Click the [Add] link next to your IP address is: OR type in your IP address (or class C address) and click the add button
Note: You may visit HostMonster.com/ip to find your IP address. The 'Class C' Address means you will whitelist all IP addresses under the first three octets of the IP address (ie: everything under 192.168.0.*).
