            MySQL: 001 : Unknown MySQL server host 'Server_Name'

            Causes : 

            The error indicates that the logged in Windows user does not have permission to connect to MySQL. This could be due to restricted or limited access on MySQL.

            Solution :

            You will have to provide permissions for the MySQL root user, as this will allow GLOBODOX machines to access the MySQL DB.

            - On the machine on which MySQL is installed, start MySQL Command Line Client from Start >> MySQL >> MySQL Command Line Client.
            - Type in the password for root user, once the MySQL command window launch.
            - At the cursor, type Grant all on *.* to 'root'@'%' identified by 'password';
                  Replace password with the password of the root user.
            Note: Also make sure that the port 3306 is opened in the Windows Firewall

            - Press Enter. The above query will be executed with a confirmation message.

            - Now, again at the cursor type Flush Privileges; and press Enter.

            You can close the MySQL Command line window and then access GLOBODOX.
