    Managed WordPress Hosting - External MySQL connection

    Hi,

    We are using Godaddy Managed WordPress Hosting to store a website, 

     

    We need to create reports using MS Power BI on the data that is contained within the underlying MySQL database.

     

    Is it possible to have a remote connection to the MySQL database?

    We've been through the PHPAdmin panel and cannot see how to get a connection string.  

    We are currently exploring if we can use an SSH tunnel. 

     

    Does anyone have any experiences or idea to share? 

     

    Thanks in advance

    Tony
