Hello,

I need a software on my computer to synchronise with my only MySQL database.

The only fields that have on the software are: - MySQL server or IP address - Username - Password

I know my username and password of course, but I don't know the server or IP address of the database. I tried : webXXX.webfaction.com (where XXX is a number) , but it doesn't work.

Any help, much appreciated.

The MySQL instance for your account is on the same server that your websites are installed to. So your webXXX.webfaction.com would be correct. However, the connection may fail if you haven't requested remote access to your database yet.

Please open a support ticket so that we can enable remote access to the database you need access to. https://help.webfaction.com/
