1.5. SSH Tunneling

fmPreferences - SSH connection.

This section describes how to setup SSH connection.

If for some reasons direct connection via port 3306 is not allowed, there is another way - secure SSH connection. Actually SSH is a kind of tunnel between two computers - your computer and your server. Please make sure that SSH access is enabled and configured at your hosting account. Please contact your hosting company to enable and configure it. You will NOT be able to use SSH connection, until Hosting Company enables it.

The only info you need is SSH user name, password and remote port number. You're welcome to contact your hosting company to find out your username and password and to verify if the 22 port is used.

Note: SSH settings do not override MySQL settings. To connect to your database using SSH you have to specify all required MySQL parameters (Direct Connection to MySQL Server) as well as SSH.
