1.7. SSH Tunneling
This section describes how to setup SSH connection.
If for some reasons direct connection via port 3306 is not allowed, there is another way - secure SSH connection. Actually SSH is a kind of a tunnel between two computers - your and your server. Please make sure that SSH access is enabled and configured on your hosting account. Please contact your hosting company to enable and configure it. You will NOT be able to use SSH connection until Hosting Company enables it.
The only info you need is SSH user name, password or private key and SSH Host. You're welcome to contact your hosting company to find out your username and password and to verify if the 22 port is used.
