I have read the threads about getting the hosting service to open the proper port to allow you to connect to your mySQL dbs remotly, but lets say that they wont do that for you. I have all my information inputed locally in a mySQL DB and now I need to get all the info put in the mySQL database that my hosting company has given me. HOW? What is the best way? Any articles or links to help? Pre-thanks for your help.
