Hey there rtCommmunity!
This is my third attempt on creating a fresh new droplet on Digitalocean just to see if I’m able to connect to the mysql database using the MySQL Workbench app or Sequel Pro apps on Mac. The result: a total disappointment in the end.
Right after the droplet is ready, the overall EE installation and the site creation using
ee site create mydomain.com —wpfc is smooth and I end up with a great working WordPress install under Nginx + fastcgi-cache, so far so good.
However, I’m facing a nightmare trying to connect to the mysql database using MySQL Workbench or Sequel Pro apps on Mac, no matter what I do, I just can’t get it to work!
I just can’t stand with EE default Mysql root password, so right after creating the site I’ve successfully changed the password the Mysql root password on Terminal as also under
Right after that I then stop and restart all the EE stack services with the commands
ee stack reload and
ee stack restart.
After restarting the services I’m perfectly able to login to Mysql under the terminal with my new Mysql root password, so no issues with the login droplet and Mysql login credentials.
Not sure what is causing this issue, all other droplets I have with manually installed LEMP stacks are able to connect to Mysql database, with exception of those managed with EE.
- I keep getting SSH Tunnel timeout error as follows:
Could not connect the SSH Tunnel
Authentication error, unhandled exception caught in tunnel manager, please refer to logs for details
Failed to Connect to MySQL at 127.0.0.1:3306 through SSH tunnel at 22.214.171.124(droplet ip) with user root
Tunnel connection cancelled
I’d really appreciate any help regarding this issue. Thanks for your time!
