I got the server and on it is some mysql database TEST. I tried connected on it with my root account by using DBVisualizer but I keep getting could not connect check host name and port.
I tried with root account and also with TEST user account. Their passwords are OK.
mysql> show databases;
I found my TEST database. I do not know any other parameters how to connect to database? I suppose either root or test can connect to it. How to check on which port is the database or does it have to be active?
I tried with netstat and this is my response? what does it mean?
netstat -an | grep -i mysql unix 2 [ ACC ] STREAM LISTENING 8596 /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
