MySQL Databases on

MySQL databases are available for non-production and educational use to students, faculty, and staff on

Two databases are automatically created upon your first login, they are usr_username_0 and user_username_1 (replace username with your SOU username).

There is a ".my.cnf" file in your home directory on the server. This file contains your MySQL password (use your SOU username).

To access, use any SSH client. For Windows, we recommend PuTTY. Mac and Linux systems have SSH clients built-in to the operating system.

For remote access form an on-campus computer, MySQL runs on the standard port of 3306. MySQL remote access is not available from off-campus (use SSH instead).

If your MySQL password is not working, please contact the IT Help Desk for assistance.
