    Hey folks, I just solved an issue I expect other people to face. My web host allows me to do crazy things with MySQL and I am using them in my plugin code as well as my Bisect MySQL, and I want to show you my problem / solution.

    Some hosts have a whitelist, for MySQL remote access, usually in cPanel. so when they directed me to this I input my server address.

    If I had been more careful, I would have noticed that the MySQL error generated a refusal for a slightly different Bisect IP - I had to whitelist 198.23.203.66, maybe you will get a slightly different IP in your error so pay attention to that. And it works fine, now. TIL
