Initial Description

    * 3307 is the local port used to connect to the remote database. You can use 3306, however, this could conflict with your PC’s MySQL installation.
    * localhost and 3306 is the MySQL address from the remote server (most people will not need to change this)
    * myusername is your SSH user name
    * is the remote server’s domain or IP address.

The connection details are:

    * ‘localhost’ for the MySQL host address (your end of the tunnel)

    * the remote database name, and
    * the remote username and password, i.e. a MySQL account with permissions to access and configure the database.
