How to use Sequel Pro or MySQL Tools with Xampp-VM

Postby CarlosFreire » 09. July 2019 01:39

Hi everyone:
In the non-virtual machine versions of Xampp, it was very easy to connect to the local database with MySQL Tools or Sequel Pro, usually via socket, by the path: /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/var/mysql/mysql.sock

Already in the VM version ... nor by presidential decree.
The /lampp/etc/my.cnf file indicates the same socket connection by the path:

But it does not work.

Can anyone give an indication or do we only have to go back to the non-VM version?
Working only with phpMyAdmin? Speaks seriously...

Last but, another thing:

There's a topic right here in Apache Friends just about this "new" and incensed VM version of Xampp:
The problem is that nobody answers there, it's been a while.
Since October 22, 2018, to speak the truth.

Regards, Carlos

I have created specially an account to answer you. I struggled a lot a finally I find a solution by connecting via SSH.
You have to use the connection feature SSH via Sequel PRO.

Host MySQL : (local machine for the remote point of view)
User: root
Password: empty (by default there is none)
Base: optional
Port: optional

Host SSH: 192.168.X.X (you remote machine IP)
User SSH: root
Key SSH: ~/.bitnami/stackman/machines/xampp/ssh/id_rsa (You have to click on the little key button to browse to this path. Tick the option to show hidden folder to show see the .bitnami from your ~ user default directory)
Port SSH: optional

Then connect.

NB: I used this link to find the solution
