Enabling Remote MySQL in the WHM panel

  1. Log in to your server’s WHM panel 

  2. Find the left-side navigation bar labeled SQL Services, or type ‘mysql’ in the search box as shown below. 

  3. Click Additional MySQL Access Hosts

4. On the following page, enter SimpleBackups IP address in the text box as shown

5. Click the Save button

Now that you have added the IP address to WHM, you may need to do it to each cPanel account as well.
