I suspect this ID/ password will work, but it is not possible to test it until we unblock the connection to the database.
The connection is blocked after 10 unsuccessfully connection attempts.
See the error below:
Further investigation on the internet and it seems that we need to unblock it in the mySQL server running the command “mysqladmin flush-hosts”.
Is there an automatic unblock after a period of time or is there actually a need to flush from the MySQL prompt?
