you need im mysql server to add permissions to connect to your database from your IP-address with username and password


GRANT
    priv_type [(column_list)]
      [, priv_type [(column_list)]] ...
    ON [object_type] priv_level
    TO user_specification [, user_specification] ...
    [REQUIRE {NONE | ssl_option [[AND] ssl_option] ...}]
    [WITH with_option ...]

object_type:
    TABLE
  | FUNCTION
  | PROCEDURE

priv_level:
    *
  | *.*
  | db_name.*
  | db_name.tbl_name
  | tbl_name
  | db_name.routine_name

user_specification:
    user [IDENTIFIED BY [PASSWORD] 'password']

ssl_option:
    SSL
  | X509
  | CIPHER 'cipher'
  | ISSUER 'issuer'
  | SUBJECT 'subject'

with_option:
    GRANT OPTION
  | MAX_QUERIES_PER_HOUR count
  | MAX_UPDATES_PER_HOUR count

Issue a SELECT * FROM mysql.user WHERE user like 'abcuser'; and see what user(s) with that ID are allowed and from where. Host column tells you from what machine or networked is abcuser allowed to login.

And please read this page to understand how to fix it.

$ mysql -u root -p mysql

2.mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON databasename.* TO user@'hostname' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';

3. mysql>flush the privileges;

Note:- change the database name & hostname of your PC.
