Replied to Enable Remote Access To Database Without SSH

Thank you for the response! It ended up being a MySQL Workbench issue. Not sure what because I downloaded Sequel Pro and connected with no issues. Thanks again!

Replied to Cannot Connect To MySQL Workbench

Thanks for the speedy reply! I ended up having to download a test version of Sequel Pro (the full release crashes on OSX Mohave). Using Sequel Pro worked! Strange but at least I'm passed that one! Thanks again!

Replied to Cannot Connect To MySQL Workbench

My private key is already OPENSSH. I can ssh into Forge using my private key in Terminal...however...using the same private key through MySQL Workbench I get the following...

"Access denied. Authentication that can continue: publickey"

No matter what I try for the connection settings I get this message. PLEASE HELP!! I've searched for days but have had to resort to using the console to run queries while logged in to Forge. Any assistance would be much appreciated!

Replied to Enable Remote Access To Database Without SSH

I cannot connect to my EC2 database no matter what I try! My public key is added to Forge and I can ssh into the Forge server using my private key in Terminal. I try to connect using my private key in MySQL Workbench and no matter what I try I get the following message...

"Access denied. Authentication that can continue: publickey".

I have searched Google for hours and have found nothing that helps. Any additional assistance would be greatly appreciated!
