How to solve: ERROR 1130 (HY000): Host ’′ is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

My SQL error:1130

Scenario :

Getting error 1130 when trying to remotely connect MySQL server with ip address from my server using the Database user ‘test_123’. 

To resolve the above error, first log into the MySQL server in and search for the user test_123, to ensure whether it exists on the server.

#mysql -u root -p
mysql>SELECT user,host FROM mysql.user WHERE user = 'test_123';

The above query is used for checking whether the user exists or not and if so, from which host or IP address they have permission to access.

| user           | host         |
| test_123       | localhost    |

So the user can only access the system via localhost. This is why it was unable to login to the server with this user.

Now we can easily solve error by creating the user with permission to access MySQL server ( from my server (

To do so, create the same user again with the host as

mysql> CREATE USER 'test_123'@'' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

Then, grant privileges to the user using the GRANT PRIVILEGES query.

Here we will be  granting all privileges on the database “test_db1” to the user:

mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON test_db1.* TO 'test_123'@''; 

For testing,  use the SELECT user,host FROM mysql.user WHERE user = ‘test_123’; query again, Now we could see: 

| user           | host                |
| test_123       | localhost 	      |
| test_123       |      |

Now its showing that the user can access the MySQL server both via localhost and

We can  now able to connect to the MySQL server remotely from using the Database user ‘test_123’.

$mysql -h -u test_123 -p

Enter password:

Here’s how we could fix the ERROR 1130 (HY000): Host ’′ which is not allowed to connect to the MySQL server, when trying to access mysql remotely. You could also create the user with the host as ‘%’, but be aware, this will grant access to the user from “any remote source”.
