By default, cPanel does not enable remote MySQL connections, which is a good thing as long as you don’t need to.

If you are using cPanel and want to allow SimpleBackups to back up your MySQL databases without adding a server to your SimpleBackup account, then you will need to whitelist SimpleBackups’ IP (Enable Remote MySQL Connections).

Enabling Remote MySQL in cPanel

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. Under Databases, click the Remote MySQL icon shown below.

3. In the Host field, type in then click Add Host


Once you have added the IP address to Remote MySQL, chat with us and we will help you with the rest.

Still don’t have a SimpleBackups account?
Use SimpleBackups to back up your cPanel databases hourly, daily, weekly or monthly to Amazon S3, Dropbox, DigitalOcean Spaces, Google Cloud Storage and more!
