I have been trying to connect to my MySQL server for the past week or so to no avail. Each time I attempt to make the connection, I receive the following error message:

Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061): No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

I have tried googling solutions but have not been able to figure it out. Let me know if you have any experience with this issue and if there is a possible solution.

Please note, when working with MySQL connections, the main requirement is that your MySQL database must be available through the Internet.

If connecting to database on the local computer, it is required to allow such connections in your firewall. 

If connecting to a computer in the local network, it is necessary to use port forwarding.

Also, Skyvia will access your server from the IP
