MySQL is bound to localhost by default

By commenting out the bind-address in the MySQL configuration, it will bind to all interfaces.
sed -i "s/^bind-address/#bind-address/" /etc/mysql/my.cnf

the issue was for some reson

the issue was for some reson "root" did not have access to remotely administer the db. I create a new account with full to all db instances and it worked.

Glad it works, although...

Glad it works, although it doesn't make sense to me how it would - unless navicat tunnels connections over ssh or something similar.

the issue is the hosts.

the issue is the hosts. root only has local host, backstagej, and I created a new account and assigned it a host of "any"

go to webadmin, then mysql

go to webadmin, then mysql administration, then create a user account. you think specify what hosts the account can access from.

thanks for reporting this

the 'backstage' mysql.user host will be removed from all lamp based appliances released from this point on.
