• you have a Linux remote host with your MySQL database server
  • you have enabled SSH server on your Linux Server
  • you want manipulate your MySQL server using a remote machine (in this case I use a Mac).

To manipulate your MySQL you could use PhPMyAdmin, but I prefer to use a client application on my Mac without installing other software on remote Linux server (more secure!).

Well! To do this follow this steps on your Linux server:

  1. edit your /etc/hosts.allow file and add this line (if missing):
  2. edit your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file and ensure that there is a line like this:
    AllowTCPForwarding yes
  3. restart sshd daemon:
    linux:~# /etc/init.d/sshd restart
  4. download Sequel Pro (or your preferred application) and add new connection using SSH tab on Connection Properties.
  5. Done.
