Date: 2010mar17 Product: mysql Q. How can I connect to a remote MySQL database? A. This command line does just that:mysql --host=<HOST> --user=<USER> --password=<PASSWORD> --port=3306Of course, replace <HOST>, <USER> and <PASSWORD> with the real values. Port 3306 is the default so you don't need to use that option if it is on that port.
