How to create a read only access from one Centos 6.5 VPS to one specific mySQL DB on a Centos 7 VPS?

I have two VPS servers - Centos 6.5 and Centos 7. On the Centos 7 server I have a mySQL DB called db_ecommerce. I need to be able to have a read-only access to it from the Centos 6.5 server. Any ideas how it could be done?

thanks in advance

What you do is you create a read only user for that specific server (Centos 6.5 - its IP address or hostname ) on the Centos 7 Mysql database.
CREATE USER 'tester'@'<your servers IP address or hostname>' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
Then issue
GRANT SELECT ON <desired database or * (all ) >.<desired table or all ( * )> TO 'tester'@'<your servers IP address or hostname>';

Then use that user to connect to the Centos 7 database from Centos 6.5 server.
