I am trying to connect to MySQL on my server via ssh using plink.exe
SSH host + port: "ip_number_of_server":"port" Username: "Sudo_user" Private key file: "private_key.ppk" Mysql side: Hostname/ip: "127.0.0.1" User: "root" password: "password" port: "default_port_number"
I get this error:
Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: yes)
In meantime I used workbench but converting private.ppk to private.pem. This worked and I was able to connect to MySQL server.
But when I use same private.pem key on Heidi, I get an error message that .pem is too old, literally. So what else can I do? I prefer Heidi over Workbench, so any help would be appreciated.
