Limited connectivity

When MySQL is installed by MediaPortal setup, it is configured to allow all clients to connect. If MySQL was installed earlier it might be configured to deny access to some client computers.

To configure the MySQL settings you need to install MySQL Workbench.

Launch MySQL Workbench and click Server Administration.

Enter the root password.

Select the Users and Privileges tab and make sure that the user root is not prevented to connect from your MediaPortal computer. You may use % as wildcard in the field Limit Connectivity to Hosts Matching to allow access from any host.
