How exactly do you stablish a ssh connection to a mysql database in order to install wordpress on a server that requires it?
I had never needed to do this, but the guys at networksolutions.com tell me that I need to use a ssh tunnel to connect to mysql database. How exacltly do i do that? Is it with PHP code? I have googled it but all I can find is how to connect your pc to a database through a ssh tunnel, but nothing of the sort for a hosting server-to-database server connection.
By the way, I didnt choose that provider, someone else gave me the hosting to install the the blog. I normally use ehostpros and they dont require you to use ssh.
Can anyone help?
