I needed to add Wordpress to a windows server 2012 with mysql. everything is installed correctly and the system is working. However, I am not able to telnet to mysql from my workstation.
I keep getting this error: F*Host 'real ip not shown here' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server
I logged into the mysql server and by using mysql.exe I typed in:
GRANT ALL ON *.* to root@ 'real ip not shown here' IDENTIFIED BY 'real password that is not shown here'
I assume that I did this correctly because after each command I to nothing back. (Linux/Unix code for you did it right. I think?)
But when I try to telnet into the server from the IP that I used in the first command. I get the same error.
Am I missing something?
