When you set up a database on Godaddy, you usually have to select whether it is going to be externally accessible or not.  It is Not a port selection that does that.  Once selected you can't change it, you have to create a new one and copy the data from the old one.

Saying the same thing over and over again isn't going to help.  On shared hosting you had to select whether you wanted remote access or not.  I can't find anything in their Help pages about dedicated hosting.

Windows Server 2008 isn't listed on their current hosting pages.  You will have to contact Godaddy to get it changed or find out how.

I did.
And I have tested on numerous devices and websites.

Before I log in and contact goaddy,
Is there a setting on iis7 where I can accept incoming mysql traffic from a remote mysql  server?

IIS has nothing to do with MySQL.  Your control panel probably does though if you are using that.

Have you already set up a database and accessed it using PHP?  Is phpMyAdmin available on your server?

The standard port for MySQL is 3306.

On dedicated server (no control panel), there is no mysql Database installed there is php with iis7. Apache is not installed. Also godaddy blocks me from connnecting to external email ( gmail for example ) so i am forced to use their email.
