What are the possible MySQL ports besides the 3306?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have a hosting service and I want to share that information so I used an open source database for my users. Everything was working fine but now any of my users can't access it even I using a remote computer. My port was 3306 and I am wondering if there other mysql ports beside this.

What are the possible MySQL ports besides the 3306?


Hello Zeb,

MySQL uses port 3306 as the default port for connection. This port is usually used for trusted host accessibility and should not be used by or be accessed by untrusted hosts. The port is usually closed when an untrusted accessibility from untrusted host is detected. To ensure there is no accessibility from untrusted hosts, try the following command from a remote machine. shell> telnet server_host 3306. Where server_host is the host name or IP address. If the connection is refused, the port is blocked because of untrusted connection. So in
any case, ensure that the connection to other clients or users is secure or trusted and there will be no problem.

Thank you.
